pdf is a type of files, usually a paper that has been scaned.
You can read or or see it with Adobe program(Adobe Acrobat)
pdf can be a picture or a document.
They are not programs like .exe

Well, the latest version is 9, so you can always try upgrading it, and see if that resolves the problem.

I had 7, and attempted to download 8 and that is when the problem surfaced. It went up to 98%, and then just stayed there for over half an hour, so I placed the computer on "Hybernate," and went to sleep. The next day the problem with the PDF began. But prior to this happening, I had downloaded a music/video one, with no problems. I am going to try to download 9, and see what happens. Thank You,

Adobe is one hog of a program. If you are just looking to read PDFs take a peek at Foxit Reader a much smaller freebie program that works like a champ. If you need more out of the program the cost is pretty reasonable compared to the full version of Adobe Acrobat.

Wow! I work from my home office and shell out 18 page pdf files, two or three times a day. Mine is Adobe 5 ! I'm really behind the times, but everything still works. Do you think it will soon come to the end of it's life and send me a message to upgrade?

Well, that would explain your problem, the installation didn't finish, thus the program was unable to run when you tried to open a PDF.
