Everytime I try to open an attachment in pdf form from an email I get an application error from AcroRd32.exe that says "application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000103). Click on ok to terminate the application". I'm currently using windows 2003. This started happening when I downloaded a newer version of adobe. I tried deleting the newer version but have no idea if it deleted.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Go to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. If Adobe Reader is in this list, it is not deleted. Uninstall the application from there and reinstall it. It should fix your issues.

    If the problem persists after reinstalling it, you should consider re-downloading the software, or download a previous version.
