i'm using adobe reader 8.0 and acrobat elements 7.0. if i log in as administrator... when using word, i can see the PDFMaker 7.0 toolbar and able to convert to pdf no problem... however, when logon using my username, i can't see the PDFMaker 7.0 toolbar in word. also, when using the acrobat elements 7.0 to convert a file to pdf, it gives error, 'Missing PDFMaker Files. Do you want to run the installer in repair mode'.

Have you tried this with a fresh install of the Operating system?  It almost sounds like the OS is corrupt.

Also maybe try not loading acrobat reader 8.  Try reader version 7 to see if it makes a difference.

If you logon as someone else does the tool bar work?  I am thinking possible corrupt user profile on the computer in question.

first delete profile (all that you dont need). Then uninstall Acrobat and Elements, restart and then first install reader, then elements. If doing othet way it changes some files. This have to do when log in as admin. after installing, start both programs once and download and install updates.

Log out and log in as your nerwork username (that one what profile was deleted)

It should be working fine.
