comment Control key acts as if it is stuck periodically
I hate wireless devices, so it is a wired microsoft ergonomic 4000 keyboard. I replaced it with an identical model. I use a wired logitech mouse. I never suspected interference. Plausible.

comment Control key acts as if it is stuck periodically
But what is weird it is intermittent. I will be sitting here reading a website for example, not touching the keyboard once, and I scroll down using the scroll wheel and it starts zooming. If I press control key a few times, it will stop happening, or eventually it will just go away on its own. The fact I replaced the computer and the keyboard makes it much more confusing to diagnose. I really need to try a different profile to see if it happens there as well as it is the only thing that can be considered the same.

comment Acrobat Failed to Load core DLL without any rootkits
@DaveRook, it is what I first did, but it did not work with Adobe Reader XI. I had to downgrade to Adobe Reader X. I was hoping my endusers can use the latest version, since it gets pushed automatically via group policy.

comment Acrobat Failed to Load core DLL without any rootkits
I just uninstalled Reader XI - I had to use the cleaner tool, since X and XI wouldn't allow me to install it, so I did the full XI from the adobe site, not the msi I am pushing, and same error, so I uninstalled again, cleaner tool, then X and now it works fine. Not too sure. I guess I have to contact Adobe then because its only an issue so far on Windows 7 x64 folks.

@ramhound No, I am using the regular distributable version of Acrobat Reader. I did post this originally in the Adobe forums and got no response, I am not sure whom to contact at Adobe. I am thinking I may downgrade those folks, at least as an experiment to see if it makes any difference. But, no I did not think of running sfc, I will give that a shot too. Thanks for the suggestion.

comment Acrobat Failed to Load core DLL without any rootkits
@Ramhound - I would had thought that too, but now a second enduser is complaining of the same thing - both with the Protected Mode nonsense. I don't know if it is an issue with Win 7 x64 (My machine is x86) and 100+ endusers all received the push for Reader XI. I used the config tool to generate the mst file, so unless its a 64-bit issue, I don't think it is corruption when more than one computer is exhibiting the same thing. I can try to downgrade them to Acrobat X, or manually install rather than use active directory. Maybe that will give me more insight.

Yes I did (I guess I wasn't clear with that too because I mentioned it in the original question - also in the followup to Dave Rook).

I had just been made aware that a second enduser in the origanisation is having the same issue. Also Windows 7 x64. I recently pushed out the msi for Acro Reader XI but there are 100+ computers in my AD!

comment Acrobat Failed to Load core DLL without any rootkits
As previously mentioned, I provided the error, already stated I uninstalled/reinstalled and as an IT professional I have no idea how else to proceed. Below you will find that there are no errors logged in the event viewer. After following reading what @Dave-Rook mentioned, I am still stuck in the same point.

comment Acrobat Failed to Load core DLL without any rootkits
Okay, I copied the files to C root, and I get the same error. When I first started Adobe Reader, I got an error about Protected Mode, but I chose Always Open with Protected Mode disabled, but I get the same error about core nonetheless. I also found when I start Windows and after logging in, I got an error about reader_sl.exe was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). There were no logs in the event viewer logged pertaining to anything as to what is currently going on.

Yes, sorry, it is Windows 7 x64, in a office environment (Windows 2003 AD domain)

comment Update hyperlinks in Excel 2010 after copying files
I am not sure exactly what to do because I really need my enduser up and running with this. Doing it manually will take far too long- he says the Macro doesn't work. I think because of the temp file space/users directory isn't linking properly. I am not sure how he created the links initially, but it was originally created in Excel 2003 on Windows XP. He now uses Windows 7 with Office 2010.

Sorry about that, I didn't know that, but I did edit that yesterday and wasn't sure what to do as I still got an enduser needing a solution...
