I just downloaded Adobe update. Now Adobe tries to open ALL files that I want to open, IE11, Recovery. Then an error window opens and tells me that Adobe cannot open this type of file ( .exe. etc.) I cannot use that computer. SafeMode also uses Adobe when I try to reach Recovery. Can anyone help me?

Fix EXE file associations - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/fixexec/


Then run Windows System Restore - select a restore point prior to the Adobe installation -

Hi jcgriff2

     Does this mean that Adobe is the cause of the problem itself ?I hope I am asking my question clearly ,,,,,,,do you think that Adobe brings malware with it ????I had lot of problems whenever I used it & I really was tired of the many many updates,I since I switched to Foxit I have never had any more problems                               Thank you & Best Regards,Kwik
