Any ideas please?

Try Foxit reader - less bloated than Adobe and does the job just as well.

What happens when you try to open a pdf file? Do the pdf files have the Acrobat icon?
Are you using the full Adobe Acrobat program or just the Adobe Acrobat Reader?

"Hi Maj Maybe if I try to down;oad one I can cut and paste the error"

Yes post your error message

Hi astrantia, it's better to post in this thread rather than do it through email, it gives others a chance to see what's being tried and to give their ideas.

Remove Acrobat from Control Panel\Add Remove Programs, it takes a lot of space and for me it's not as good as Foxit
