Windows 7: Can't install Adobe Reader

Can't install Adobe Reader

I had Adobe Reader 9.3 installed, but it was uninstalled as part of my trying to install Adobe Reader 9.4, which won't install. I successfully downloaded the Adobe download manager in Firefox, but at the end of the Adobe Reader installation, I get two messages. Both want me to verify that I have access to the directory ProgramData\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0\Replicate\Security\Directories\acrodata; and ProgramFiles (x86)\Adobe\9.0\Reader\plug_ins\annotations\Stamps\Words.pdf.

In the first case, I have nothing in the Security folder. In the second case, I have nothing in the Reader folder.

I press ignore for both, but then the only option is to cancel.

I tried this process again with both my firewall (Windows 7) and antivirus program (AVG) disabled. Still didn't work, same error messages.

I tried this in IE, but it won't let me download files unless I install the Google Toolbar and make IE the default browser. I don't think this is a browser issue, though.

How can I get Adobe Reader 9.4 successfully installed?

Thanks.

Either remove it and reinstall Adobe using Revo Pro trial: Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily

Or use an alternative such as Foxit Foxit Software - Foxit Reader 4.1 for Windows or Nitro Nitro PDF Reader

Foxit is far less bloated than adobe and all the baggage it carries.

I'm using the Foxit Reader now, as an alternative. I tried the Revo Uninstaller Pro and the old Absolute Uninstaller I have, but Adobe Reader isn't listed.

Any suggestions on what happened with the Adobe install and how I can correct it?

Thanks.

What you can do is to reinstall the previous version and then uninstall it by Revo.Uninstaller.Pro..Advanced Mode

(Though Advanced mode is not that necessary but sometimes it helps.
It only takes 2 seconds more on my PC.)

Just downloaded and installed without any problems. Tried earlier, but the download wasn't completing, so I think that there might have been a problem at Adobe's end. Incidentally, I always download and save the file to my computer and then run it from there.

I always save files and download them from my computer, too. But to download and install the Adobe Reader, you must first download the Adobe Download Manager. Where can I find the Adobe Reader as a standalone exe file?

Revo Uninstaller Pro doesn't show that previous versions of the Adobe Reader are on my computer. And I don't see an advanced mode on the Revo interface.

Here,

Download Adobe Reader 9.4.0 - FileHippo.com

Usually takes them a day or two after an update for them to add it to their library. MajorGeeks is another that will probably have it.
