Downloading PDFs

  Sixosix 11:55 12 Apr 2005

I have MS Internet Explorer with Symantic internet protection which operates quite normally with web pages, graphics and file downloads. When attempting to download PDFs pages on the web it just hangs with a graphic placement icon in the top left corner. There is no trace of a file (to read with my Acrobat Reader 5.0) amongst recent Tempory Internet Files or elsewhere. How do I get PDFs to download please?

Remove Acrobat from Add Remove in Control Panel and then reinstall it. It should link to your Internet Browser with a Plug in. Then when you look at a Acro file you should be able to save it to your hard drive top left to save

I would also suggest that you get the latest version of Adobe Reader (Version 7) click here

Thanks a lot both - new Reader now works fine.

VoG™ strange that you should give a link for Adobe Reader (Version 7) but on downloading it is actually Adobe Reader 6.0.1 which I already have.

Version 7 requires Windows 2000 SP2 or later to run.

I guess that it has determined that you are on Windows 98 and given you the latest compatible version.

Just to concur link sent me to version 7 (XP SP2)
