Hi,

Please try this: open Adobe Reader. Then click on Edit menu on the top, then click on Preferences... Then click on Internet on the left. Then uncheck the box at Display PDF in browser, and click on OK and close Adobe Reader. Now try again.

Thanks,

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
