I would suggest you download and install Foxit PDF Reader and make that your default program

Uninstall Adobe and try pdf x-change viewer.

Download here; click here

Think Adobe have a problem. N

Try again, not the first post with problems with Adobe PDF reader. Alternatives do work. Suggest that lenjam uses the uninstaller first,for Adobe, then installs a different PDF reader.

Yes - at least the second one today :@)

Personally I keep both Adobe and Foxit on my system - I use Foxit as the default - but for some bizarre reason the bills from my gas company will only open properly in Adobe!

PDF-xchange viewer seems to be able to handle most PDF docs. Only as a matter of interest have you tried it?
Dumped Foxit a while ago.

I haven't tried PDF Xchange but I will do so. I've been a fan of Foxit for several years, but I have noticed that recently it is becoming somewhat more 'bloated' and taking on some of the features of Adobe.
