I am unable to get Adobe reader 7 or 8 to load.  Adobe 7 gives me an Internal error and 8 just hangs.  I ahve even granted the client Full Control.

Yes, all other apps work fine.  The only way I can get Adobe reader 8 to work is to put the user in the administrator group....then it works like a champ.  I have tried changing the registry keys and program directory to have Full Control.  The only thing that works is to be an administrator.

Hi

have you had a look at this KB:
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=332287

Resolve the issue with 7 first, if you cannot it is most likely a permission issue.

You may as well stick with 8 then, remove all 7/8 traces by uninstalling and have a look at       http://www.adobe.com/go/kb400654 to get rid of remnants..

Reinstall and have a look at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe and make sure that your Power users have special permissions set with all allowed bar Full Control/Create Link/Write DAC/write Owner, the subkeys should inherit these permissions.
