    Adobe Reader is opening multiple files
    Just installed Adobe Reader 9 on OS X 10.1.11. When I try opening up Reader, it automatically opens up every single pdf on my computer. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Reader 9, but it doesn't fix the problem. The old Adobe Reader 7 on my computer works fine, but I really need to upgrade to version 9. Any thoughts?

    I am sorry, but Adobe Reader on the Mac just sucks for me. It asks me every single time whether or not I want it to be the default reader. I choose no and select the 'don't ask me again' box and it asks me EVERY SINGLE time. It also crashes EVERY SINGLE time I open a protected pdf file. It is about the only thing on the Mac that bothers me if you couldn't tell. Sorry about the rant!

    Hi
    I am experiencing the same problem. Adobe says to uninstall and reinstall which I did and the same thing happens. Did you solve the problem?
    Thanks.

    Try Skim - quick and free pdf viewer - also allows you to highlight, take notes in your pdf's and much more.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Unfortunately, I have to use Adobe Reader because of the darn encryption used by some training material I have for my job. I did grab Skim though for other things. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I'm still no closer to finding a solution. What is more annoying is that the document that I'm working on requires specific versions of either Reader 8 or 9, but Adobe only offers this buggy version of Reader 9 on their website.
