Adobe Reader

Error when trying to open Adobe Reader 8X “THIS PROGRAM CANNOT DISPLAY THE WEBPAGE”. If we close the error message, the reader works ok in terms of opening existing or saved pdf files. But if we try to open a pdf file on the internet it cannot. Yet all other internet connections and downloads work. Tried to uninstall the reader but it comes up with an error stating that it cannot uninstall. What can we do either get rid of it manually or make it work, rather make it work.

Yep, it’s a bad install by the looks of it.
You may need to manually delete it or ideally select repair and when that is complete select uninstall.
