Hello, I uninstalled adobes virtual printer from "printers" in control panel a while back, but this error pops up often in the event viewer.

Printer Adobe PDF failed to initialize because a suitable Adobe PDF Converter driver could not be found. Event ID: 23

I used to have acrobat installed, but uninstalled for being to invasive. I now use a free pdf reader.

Any idea how to get rid of this error? Been trying for 2 hours now. Maybe someone has seen this before, thanks Frank.

It does not exist under print server properties, and nothing under msconfig/services&startup.... weird.

I found it in the registry, nevermind.
