and run it manually, leaving 8 in the programs section to run automatically. This may be easier said then done but might be worth a try, if your pay check, business "doesn't" depend on it.
You will need additional input about your problem. Be patient, others may respond with a work around suggestion better then mine. The choice to proceed or not is entirely your own.
I had problems running adobe 4 on Vista, 4 has compatibility issues. Keep this in mind if your planning on buying a new computer.

okay, i have acrobat 8 reader installed (win xp), but i had to do some work on some pdf's and i only have acrobat full version 4 to create and edit therewith. trouble is, when i try to open some pdf's on line the computer automatically opens acrobet 4 and most newer pdf's will not open in it. yes, i can download and "open with" 8 but some files, like bank statements, won't download so i'm stuck. only fix is to use another comp or uninstall 4. and i'm not done with a big pdf editing project yet. and i'm cheap and don't want to upgrade either. advice? thanks - fj
