How do I unblock adobe reader
from windows firewall?
Click Start

Click Control Panel

Click Classic View at top left

Open Windows Firewall

On left column Click on Allow a Program Through Windows Firewall

Click on the Exceptions Tab

Click Add Program button

Look through the list for Adobe Reader

If not found in the list you will have to click Browse and navigate to its location on the computer

Once you have Adobe Reader selected click OK

Click OK on the next window

You may now close all windows and try to download the upgrade again.

If it is still saying it is blocking it then I would recommend Turning Windows Firewall Off while doing the upgrade and then turning Windows Firewall back On

If you have any trouble with any of this please let me know for further troubleshooting
