Problems in Word and Outlook 2003 selecting and editing Text?

By JoshPayne ·
I have a user that I support that has come to me with this error. Ever since they have installed Adobe Creative suite CS4, they have had trouble using word and outlook.
There are problems selecting / editing text with the cursor and the only way to resolve is to go out of word/outlook.
Once they are out of word / outlook a box comes up saying save changes to PDF custom.... They have been selecting no and can go back into work/outlook and start editing text again... but usually an hour or two later the problem returns.

Have Tried Un-installing and re-installing. Checked so many diffent options in Word. I think it could be related to the Adobe PDF maker addin.

Please Help!

It sounds as if Word and Outlook have been selected as the Default PDF Editor some how. I would remove CS4 and reinstall it yourself without the user being around and see if this cures the problem.

Then surely there would be a way to change a setting in Outlook, Word or an adobe product most likely Acrobat to get the problem to stop? Don't you think? I will give your suggestion a go, I wouldn't be that suprised if the user was somewhere in the intallation selecting a setting that's causing this. But like I said there should be a way to modify this post intallation.

Yes I believe that there is a Setting in CS4

That can change this but I believe that it's buried a bit deep in the system. I've found it easier in the past to just remove and reinstall.
