If I may, I would like to cry in the same cup of soup as you. I am the only
administrator on my standalone XP machine. I have installed a myriad of
programs and have not had ANY problems with the installation. I am now
trying to install Acrobat Reader 7.0 (free version) and as the program
installs it displays a message indicating I do not have rights to perform the
operation and displays an error message about the registry... I am at a loss
after having tried it many times. Any suggestions? Hope I didn't get my
nose in here where I shouldn't but I am pretty desperate... Thanks, Ken

It depends........ are you having login problems? or did the adobe
install screw up your registry? This was basically how to crack ol xp
passwords. What was the error message you got when you tried it?
