    Adobe's reader can still be had as a free download. If you have downloaded and installed it, but it won't open the files they might not be pdf's or they could be corrupt.

        What operating system are you using? Adobe PDF reader is "free" but like others have pointed out, you may have downloaded some virus infected files.

              If it is asking for money then you are likely not using the intended product, probably unknowingly tricked into something undesireable. For viewing and printing PDF files there are numerous choices, Adobe Reader is free and I think you should try to download and reinstall it in an attempt to fix whatever has "hijacked" your PDF files. Installing it should re-associate it with PDF's and, in theory, solve your problem. This won't address any infection if you have one.

              Optionally.... Might be best to uninstall any previous versions of Adobe Reader first, as well as any other "PDF" programs you don't recognize or that have a very recent install date that coincides with your issue. You can uninstall programs in the control panel, look for an icon that says add/remove programs or Programs and Features.

              Here is a direct link to the adobe reader installer direct from Adobe, without any junk add-ons.

              Best Wishes.

                Mike,

                I suspect you downloaded Adobe Acrobat instead of the free Reader.
