Repa, I keep forgetting to complete this task!

both of these links that Sam posted, are Green links according to Siteadvisor. Take a look if you have time, please.

http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php

http://www.download.com/Foxit-Reader/3000-2079_4-10313206.html

Considering the small size, I'm thinking seriously about installing it. If I do, don't I need to remove all the remaining Adobe references in my Add/Remove Programs?


Sam: Thanks for posting the links!!!

Thanks Repa!

The download is yellow, not green. Read this:

http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/foxitsoftware.com/downloads/15744106/

Only delete Adobe Reader from Add/Remove Programs.

I guess I'll go with adobe then.

When I said the links are green, I was talking about the siteadvisor icon on the bottom of page, above my Task Bar. How did you find the link you posted? I don't remember seeing an analysis page like that before, and a Nuisance Score.

Oh yeah. Before I clicked Sam's links, I googled them, and the search also gave those links, Green checkmarks. I don't understand that at all.?

You have to go to the siteadvisor site itself. I have never downloaded the Siteadvisor application. Go here:

www.siteadvisor.com

and input the webpage you want to visit/obtain information on in the text box that is toward the lower right-hand side of the screen and click Go. This brings up another webpage that gives you an analysis of what siteadvisor investigated, including downloads, emails, links, as well as comments from independent evaluators. If you want to be safe, you need all the information, not just the green checkmark that the siteadvisor application gives you. I've seen that green checkmark with downloads that they marked as red. So, I really don't trust them without looking at everything, including other users' evaluations of the site in question.

How about going to the new board and check it out so you can see if you like it there. We may move to that board before the end of the year if people like it better. Here's the url:

You will have to register.

Look around and get familiar with it. Most things are similar - a few differences like posting images, but most things are pretty easy to figure out. Everyone that regularly contributes is over there now, and most seem to like it. Performance is better day-to-day, very few times that I have experienced any slowdowns. Still haven't decided for sure if we will stay there, but it looks pretty likely right now.

Ask questions if you can't figure out how to do something.

well, i intended to put a screenshot over here on this board, my first, i might add, but, it appears that someone will have to instruct me on this new board. i don't see the new add image to post over here.

my main purpose is to tell repa, and all, that i posted this same subject line Foxit Reader, at the old board. repa, the screenshot there will show what happened with adobe.

thanks,
wcturner

Here's your screen shot:

Repa, i'll try 1st. screenshot to illustrate what happened after i installed adobe you recommended. if this works, it'll show the popup i get from adobe.

Well, I see the screen shot, but I don't know what you were doing when you got it. Were you trying to run Adobe Reader? Were you in an Administrator account when you downloaded and installed Adobe Reader? What account were you in when this occurred? This is asking you to specify the account you want to run a program in. Supply an account name and password and see what happens.

To post images on this board, read the following instructions:

Were you trying to run Adobe Reader? no, i had just installed it, had already Ran the setup. i thought i was finished and it started popping
up.

Were you in an Administrator account when you downloaded and installed Adobe Reader? yes

What account were you in when this occurred?my limited account

This is asking you to specify the account you want to run a program in. Supply an account name and password and see what happens.
in the screenshot it shows my limited account, when i'd click OK, it would close the window, ut, pop right back. to get rid of it i had to click the X. just before this post, i tried to type my limited account into the user name block, it didn't work. as you see the pic in that block designates owner account. so, i typed owner, & lo & behold the window closed. i don't know as yet if that has taken care of it or not.


if that takes care of the pop up window, since i typed owner, does that mean adobe will only work in owner account or all accounts?

Well, if you downloaded and installed Adobe Reader in your Owner account, which has administrator privileges, and then the popup occurs when you are in your limited account and you say you were not trying to run Adobe Reader, then exactly what application were you trying to run when that popup window occurred? I don't see in your image post what program that warning window is referring to. What exactly were you doing?

I can't answer your last question about which accounts Adobe Reader will run in until you can tell me exactly what you were doing when this warning window occurred. Have you tried running Adobe Reader in you limited user account? You should be able to use Adobe Reader in any account.


To change the color of your text, highlight the text and then click on the icon in the menu that looks like a color pallet (between the 2 icons that have a capital A in them). A popup window will appear from which you can select the color of text you want.

as i mentioned the other post, i was finished installing and had already run adobe setup, in owner administrator account. i assumed i was finished with the adobe install. i logged out of the owner account, then went to my limited account, and clicked the firefox icon from my desktop, that you see in the screenshot, just to open the browser. and, the screenshot i posted is the result. all i was doing was opening up a browser window.

but, as i mentioned in the 9:41 pm post above, that i typed "owner" in that box, and clicked ok, the window closed, and has not made another appearance. and, i tried to open an pdf in my limited account, before posting this, and adobe open it. so, i assume all is well now.

why does the time keep changing in this thread? i've changed it twice, to the 12 hour format, and it keeps reverting to the 24 hour/military format.

Glad you solved your problem.

Did you click on the Save button when you changed the time? Check your time now, it should be the correct 12hr time. Looks like you live west of the timeline in the central time zone? Richmond is in the eastern time zone.

yes, clicked save each time. i just looked at the time of my last post before this one, and your last post, before i logged in, and the time of those posts were different after i logged in.

Different than what? does the time of your post reflect the correct 12hr time? Your above post says you posted the reply at 6:50pm Yesterday. What does your computer say? I just checked the Date format in your profile and it is correct. If the time is correct after you logon, don't worry about it.
