    ab3.exe? please help :(

    Whenever I try to open a pdf file, I get a message saying ab3.exe is needed to open the file? I reinstalled Acrobat Reader, and nothing changed. How can I fix this?

    Welcome to Techzonez.

    Are you running AOL by any chance? I'm finding that it may be related to this app: AdpBrowser Application but still unsure exactly what that is a part of. If possible click on the Spyware Removal link in my SIG and try following the instructions there.

    I know you mentioned that you re-installed Adobe Acrobat, but had you uninstalled it as well?

    I would recommend uninstalling Adobe and then reinstalling it. If the problem still occurs, then I would look at the file associations that are set to PDF files. To do this, right-click on you Start button and select open. On the top menu, go to tools, and then click on folder options. You should see a tab that says "File Types". Click on this tab and look for PDF in the left hand column. Single-click on it and look to see what the "Opens with:" shows.
