I downloaded Adobe Reader 7.0 and my friend was unable to open it when he put in his floppy disk. Why did that happen?

A floppy only holds 1.44 mb. The file you have is NOT the install.exe file. Adobe uses the downloaded file that you aquired to download the actual install file from the internet which is MUCH larger than a floppy, I believe about 12 MB.

20.27MB Now that could be put on a 100 MB ZIP or on a CD-R & DVD-R r the RW's but a floppy is less than 1.44MB and it would have to be put on about 100 floppies. Now there are 2 ways he can get it, it is listed at: at the bottom or at It may download Adobe Acrobat 7.0.5 first, assuming he has WINXP, if not he may need an earlier version, Anne. Just minimize you online window after it starts to download. It usually goes down to the tray to speed it up (where the clock is). I have 6.01 and it is 15.9 MB and requires 3 other downloads .2, .3 & .4 patches when I had WINME

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
