uninstall winrar from your computer
I have the same problem. I've tried most of the suggestions without any success. Most attempts simply end up back with the Acrobat messages and total inability to install or run any .exe or .com files. I presume only a program that installs or checks for viruses before windows boots will solve this? Can anyone help please?
