Windows XP Pro, HP Pavilion, IE8, McAfee. Some years ago I wanted a newer version of Adobe Reader. It wouldn't download which seemed a common problem and I did a few suggested things and - don't hate me - not sure exactly what but since it wouldn't update I found an early version that would: Reader 5. Now I seem stuck with it - not a great problem for what I use this computer for but notice that some files no longer download because they need newer version of Reader.
I think Reader 8 (needed for TurboTax) would keep me going for some years to come and accomodate those few times a newer version is needed, but it is no longer on the Adobe site and free "versions" of it online don't make me feel it would be safe to get that way. Question: are those free downloads of fake Reader 8 safe? Or is downloading 9 (still available) easy and really trouble free from the Adobe site and that's a good way to go (I'd try this)? Adobe still has problems downloading as I have read on some forums and don't want to uninstall 5 if I'm left without anything at all. I know this isn't cutting edge, but some of us just keep using what works. Any help at all appreciated.
