Finally found a solution to this infernal problem:

It basically involves the use of a tool provided by Microsoft known as SubInACL, which by use of a specific script can make permission changes to registry keys and more even if you constantly get denied access. Itís really cool!
  • Download the SubInACL package and install it. It will install it to SYSTEM:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools
  • Within that folder, create a new text file and name it reset.cmd
  • Right-click the file and select Edit. You may be shown a security warning at which point, select Run.
  • It file should open in your text editor (e.g. Notepad). Paste in the following:
cd /d "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %windir%\*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbos

  • Save and close the file.
  • Please note that it would be a good idea to save any work and close any applications from this point onward. Antivirus software should be fine.
  • Right-click the reset.cmd file you created and select Run as administrator (applies to Vista owners).
  • The script will launch and will run through its routines. This can take a while so be prepared to wait about fifteen minutes or so for it to complete its operation.
  • Once the script has completed its operation and is closed, you can remove Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro via the usual Add/Remove Programs area.
  • When Acrobat has been uninstalled, reboot your computer.
  • Reinstall Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.
  • Once complete, test to check for the problem - you should not have it any more.
I hope this helps anyone with the same problem I faced. Enjoy!

    Actually I didn't have to reboot to get this to work.

    Hi! Question for you, I tried this and installed this on my Vista OS and now a lot of my programs don't work. I keep getting "not enough storage is available to complete this operation." And after doing some research I think I was supposed to install this on my OS. Any suggestions on how to restore what I have done?

    Thank you!
