Remove adobe completely since it doesn't work. The go to your Registry Editor and remove every key called adobe and a search for that W32.rile for any keys.
To do a good and complete removal, I"d go and get a trailware version of jv16 at cnet.com or zdnet.com to remove every key linked to adobe from your registry and then remove every trace and dll lin windows explorer linked to it.
Adobe acrobat reader is free; just like the cholesterol is free in your patato chips!
