Hi running windows 7 and ie9.

Have adobe reader 9 but can't seem to download reader X. ie9 and chrome 10 - nothing happens when i want to download from adobe site. the only direct link i can get off google is for the czech version - anyone can help me here? or is it not worth the trouble?


(don't know if 3rd party sites are trusted - but the main one that keeps popping out was - and it downloads an installer rather than the exe file so i didn't proceed)

No need. I just went to and clicked on adobe reader under downloads, and it was all there.

Chrome contains a built in pdf reader now (adobe no longer required). Not suitable for every use as I'm sure you are aware.
