Right click, Save As and save to your hard drive. See if the saved files will open.

I've had this before or something like it.

Has it stopped altogether or can you view the first pdf file and then no more (this is what I had)

I found I had to go to task manager and kill adobe reader, then when I clicked th enext link it would open ok.

find the file you downloaded in explorer, right click and select open with.

There may be a sub option of choose program, if so selct this.

Find adobe reader or adobe acrobat reader from the list or click browse and track down the program and select it.

clicking ok should then associate adobe reader with the pdf file type.

Right click on the file, select Open With on the pop-up menu, choose Adobe Reader and tick the box that says something like "Always use this program to open this type if file.

If that works, try on the internet again.

Start Reader, Edit/Preferences, click on Internet on the left hand side. Tick all 4 Web Browser options.

Internet Explorer, Tools/Internet Options, Advanced tab. Make sure that Enable third party browser extensions is ticked.

Failing that, uninstall Adobe Reader using Control Panel, Add or Remove programs, then re-install it.
