cannot view adobe downloads on web

  morris948 18:08 23 Sep 2003

i went to a web site where i was prompted to click to download adobe document,the screen opened and the taskbar showed that the download in progress but all i get is a white screen with a small box with a red cross in the top left hand side, the explorer icon in the taskbar shows 'done' next to it, so i presume it downloaded something, if i right click to view properties it has a file size (approx 90K) but i cant see anything --Why?,

i see the same thing happen often when viewing web sites like where the small pictures and icons for special offers are just red crosses in a box.

Im running Win XP pro, adobe acrobat5 (full version) IE6, security is set to medium

I get This file is damaged and is being repaired. Then Internet Explorer stops responding.

Not sure what your answer means vog! but i got a reply from the web administrator of that site and he said he checked the links and they work fine,so i guess somethings not setup right on my pc.
what can it be??

I've just tried your link again and got an Adobe Reader error message,

There is something wrong with the link or the .pdf file that it links to.

I decided to remove adobe acrobat5 and reload it.
It works properly now, why i will never know what went wrong?
