Whenever I try to open a "pdf." file or attachment with the red Adobe pdf logo, from my emails or saved documents, it opens to a huge font and content which is distorted to the point where it does not fit within the screen. I had this problem for months and have done sSystem Restore too. I tried all the other "cures" such as AVG, CCCleaner and Superspyware, Malwarebytes etc. and of course I uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe acrobate, Adobe reader. It doesnt help, my error seems to fit in the "corrupt or hacked"
discription.
I have "Registry Booster" by Uniblue and run that frequently. No help there.
The "fixes" I found on the web searches cost arount $100. Any suggestions?

You most likely have absolutely no need to resort to those registry boosters or cccleaners, or other exotic maintainance repair programs. Did you try looking for your pdf or browser ZOOM feature? You may just need to adjust the magnification of the pdf file which you had opened. You have likely been assuming unknown problems which do not exist on your machine.

There is a good article which addresses this issue, you can read it here.

Our staff doesn't support the use of registry cleaners. The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks for the replies Cafe and DC. The CCleaner I used WAS with help from a geek, so yes I agree, it should NOT be used by a rookie.
And I know where the zoom is and that is not the proiblem. Someone suggested that a pdf opener was a solution, and I downloaded it, problem solved! thanks again
