sufficient access to that key, or contact your support


I have Windows Vista on my laptop, and used to have an older version of Adobe Reader until I decided to update it and in turn erased the old file and the new one is not installing correctly. I went through the various solutions; taking down my firewall, downloading the Acrobat ACL repair utility, and I just can't figure out how to get it to install. Thank you for your time.

Note: a link is provided to the adobe website where i first posted this question

I am looking for step by step instructions on how to fix this problem, if anyone can help, please and thank you
