All I can say is that you had better remove Adobe Reader 9 and install the latest version (Reader X):
PDF reader, protected mode | Adobe Reader X

The link above will also tell you what you can do with the program - its main function is to open and read PDF files.

Adobe Reader 9 caused Windows Explorer to crash on my Windows 7 HP computer. In addition, older software versions are vulnerable to malware - they're a security hazard.

Hello fluidmotion,

Adobe Reader is free software that lets you open, view, search, digitally sign, verify, and print PDF files. To date, more than 600 million copies of Adobe Reader have been distributed worldwide on 23 platforms and in 33 languages.

Why should I upgrade to Adobe Reader X?

Adobe Reader X adds much in the way of new functionality, especially relating to highlighting and commenting, security, and enhanced user experience.

Is Adobe Reader X free?

Yes, Adobe Reader X is free software available on the Adobe Reader download page or wherever you see the Get Adobe Reader icon.
