I saw where one should update to Adobe Reader 8.0 because of a vulnerability in the plugin. Like a dummy I uninstalled the 7.xxx and tried to download from here:
http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Adob...nload_locations
Tried in Firefox first and then IE and they both failed to execute. Had to restart in order to delete the corrupt or unfinished downloads. Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem or should I look further as to why I can't install the reader.
I tried to update thru the program that I had before deleting, but it was not offering 8.0 even though it is a final release.

Try downloading it from the Adobe Reader 8 Site.

FYI buddy215,
I downloaded and installed Adobe Reader 8 today from the Adobe site with no problems.
It just overwrote the previous version on my system.

Thanks TMack, that link worked. It also downloads about 10 times faster, too.

Your Welcome buddy215!
That's an incredible difference.....I guess when you download it directly from the source.
