Hi, all of a sudden I am having a prob opening certain downloads as it keeps saying cannot find PDF.
Is there a free PDF I can use as I need it sometimes for this reason, and I think what I might have done was when I had a cleanout of my PC I might have deleted something like this as everything worked ok before? thanks for any help.

I have used Foxit PDF reader, which is free click here for a long time with out any problems. It is a much smaller program than Adobe, saving space on your hard drive.

Hi, they all look interesting, but which free one would be more easy to use and also understandable for someone who has never used anything like this before?

As you have seen here there are all sorts of ways which work, but Adobe Acrobat Reader is the original way and a free download.

PDF XChange virtually runs itself, it opens automatically when you are browsing when needed, and you just click the icon if you want to open it foe any other use.

Likewise, once installed Foxit opens PDF files automatically. Main plus point is small size of program compared with the very much larger Adobe program.

Hi, I have finally found on my computer Adobe Acrobat reader 5.0, would it be wise to remove this one and download the new updated version you recommend being Adobe 8 ?

Kestrel is making sense - its from the firefox team, easy and small
