    Hi - I use a ton of pdf for work & for some reason the red pdf icon I've grown accustom to has vanished. I just get this generic grey looking symbol now -which honestly sucks. I've reinstalled Adobe 9.3 - tried the repair function & nothing changed. I'm using Vista btw. Please help! Thank you, my best, D:)

    When you say repair function - which .. Vista's built-in? This the box you've just had problems with?

    Good - glad all's well. My wife just offered me french toast & coffee - so that wins (for the moment). I'll get back after breakfast. Thanks as always! D;)

    I'm only :shifty: somewhat jealous. Strange too, your comment had me conjure the image of Belushi's "food fight" for some reason?

    Hey GF - what a great movie that was! OK - sadly neither method fixed the problem. I wouldn't care about this annoyance except I use so much pdf. Any other ideas? Thanks again, D

    Which Adobe program's that from - meaning, one other than Reader? Failure to reboot might have prevented repair. Swap color depth and back again in addition to those two links in the "tips" section of that page I forwarded. And again - this the box you recently had trouble with?
