IE8 & PDF files not opening

  Joe G 00:26 24 May 2009

Does anyone have a solution to the problem that when I try to download or open any PDF file via IE 8 the programme freezes or it takes ages. Not sure if this happened with IE7 but as it seems to be a recent problem maybe that is the issue?

Thanks in anticpation - really fed up of havig to use Task Manager & then relaunch IE8!

Not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean viewing and saving pdf documents on web pages using IE8 as a browser or opening and viewing pdf's stored on your HDD using "Windows Explorer". What pdf reader are you using.
I use IE8 and despite initial reservations find Adobe 9 works fine. Able to save web pdf's with no problems, opens very fast to.
