downloads in(machine code ?)

  onefoot 17:10 13 Feb 2006

when I try to download text from a site on internet I sometimes get what appears to be machine code,although at othertimes it works ok.
I have acrobat reader 6 on windows 98se.

If as you say "from a site" "sometimes" "acrobat reader 6"..... it sounds as though it is intermittent and one site only?
If that is the case I think it is the other lot.... and not your fault.

Try saving the page in the format name.pdf/doc/ect , it seems like your browser is trying to reproduce it rather than offering you the download dialog.
