Can anyone help. Running W7 and unable to open or save PDF files such as online bank statements and insurance documents.Same problem with various sites. I have Kaspersky Internet Security which I have tried temp suspending to see if that was problem but that made no difference. I have another laptop running Vista with same security progam and I can open /download the same files with no problem.

What programme are you using to open the PDF files? If it is Adobe then you might want to try Foxit instead

Yes it is Adobe. Will try Foxit

I assume you have Adobe reader installed? PS if you do not want Google Chrome, untick this box on the link. Also I assume you have "Told" W7 to open pdf files with adobe reader?

PS Adobe works fine on my W7 system.

Tried Foxit. Problem is I cant download the PDF files in the first place so there is no file for any program to open

In which case you might want to read through this

I have checked my W7 IE 9. I have Adobe Readder installed. In IE9 Tools/Manage Add ons/ Toolbars it States that this is enabled. Have you checked your settings?

I dont appear to have Adobe Reader listed in IE9 tools/Manage add-ons
