Well, if Reader is so incompatible with Acrobat it would be a GREAT idea if
Adobe's installation software for Reader checked for an installation of Acrobat
before installing itself. (Duh!) <-Hint to Adobe
That being said, except for this single problem I've had no other conflicts
with Reader and Acrobat being installed together. But there really is no need
for installing both of them. I thought I was installing only the browser
plug-in when I updated via the Norton security suggestion.

to me that should be part of its update function, but maybe not.
I'm just reporting what worked for me. Despite occasional problems like this
I've never had to reinstall either application from scratch.
Another note: It was an update to Acrobat Reader 11 as a add-in to my browser
through a security recommendation of my Norton security software that
originally triggered the problem of losing the PDF printer.
As Dave Stamm pointed out, it is highly likely that your problem was caused by
conflicts between multiple versions of Acrobat/Reader; and Dov Isaacs, Adobe's
PDF guru, has warned against multiple installations countless times.
If you have Acrobat, do NOT install Reader!
"Acrobat and Adobe Reader have numerous components that have similar
functionality and can cause conflicts on a machine. The most prevalent among
these conflicts involves the plug-ins for rendering PDF files in the browser,
PDFMaker inside Office Applications, and the Adobe PDF printer."
