  3. Hello,
    I have Acrobat 5.0.5 (Full Version) and Ad-Aware 6 Professional and no

    I have Adobe Acrobat Reader 6 (actually and Ad-aware 6 (Build
    6.181). I've never had any conflicts between the two, and have never
    heard of any problems with one because of the other. Good luck in
    your hunt for a solution :)

    Penguin must run. Have cookie will travel.
