    Default cannot delete pages

    I'm using Adobe Acrobat 5.0 on Windows XP and am trying to delete pages in a PDF, but I'm receiving this error: "One or more pages are in use and could not be deleted." I'm not able to delete the pages. This happens with some pages but not all.

    Specifically, I select Delete Pages from the Doent menu, enter the page number (for example, From: 1 To: 2 of 9), then click Yes at the prompt, and then receive the error.

    I've used Acrobat for several years and have never before encountered this error. The pages can be deleted from the PDFs when I use an Acrobat install on another PC. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but the error persists.

    Default RE: One or more pages are in use and could not be deleted.

    Interesting to learn that an uninstall/reinstall doesn't fix this problem. I've already found that none of the Adobe patches helped. Acrobat 5 worked fine a week ago, but has suddenly acqired this glitch. No software installs corresponding to the date. (I did allow a bootup-notification Flash update to install recently, however.) I'd sure like to know what broke AA5, and how to repair it. The closest I've come to finding a solution is exacting the entire range of pages as a new Acrobat doent, closing the original, and saving the new doent as the repalcement. The new doent DOES allow page deletions. It's a hassle, though, for an error that shouldn't even be happening in the first place.
