Most people consider the reader from www.foxitsoftware.com a good replacement.
Easy to try. Be sure you don't install the toolbars it comes with.
Running Windows XP Home Edition version 2002 Service Pack 3 and have had a long standing problem with the data execution prevention closing Adobe reader when i try to print the file - i get the error message that - To help protect your computer , Windows has closed this programme - then i go to the change settings box - Check: turn on DEP for all programs and services except those i select: tick the Adobe reader box, then ok, and ok again, but still wont work. Have restarted the computer to make sure the settings have taken but still DEP closes adobe. Also suggests finding a up to date version of adobe (dep compatible) but have not been able to find one. The version of Adobe reader that i am running is the latest version as i have uninstalled the old and downloaded the new to have the same error occurring.Think i have covered everything - any suggestions?
