When I click on a link to a PDF document in Google or within a website, it will not open. More specifically, the address appears in the toolbar, but the page remains blank.

I have no problem viewing them if I download them, but I prefer to avoid doing this if possible.

What's the problem? I am thinking it might be my Norton Internet Security.....(?)

TIA:-)

Sorry, the version of Acrobat I am using is 6.0.

What is your version? Aug 31, 2004

In order to reduce file size, some pdf files are created to support only Adobe Acrobat 5.0 or 6.0.
If you have Adobe Acrobat (or Reader) version 4.0 or 5.0, you may not be able to see some pdf files.

Acrobat version Aug 31, 2004

Hi,

I used to have similar problem. Acrobat Reader v.6.0 had a bug, but they have corrected the problem with 6.0.1 (the latest version as far as I know).

HHB.
Take care,
Servet

Hi! if you have acrobat 6.0, it should function. Additionally Norton people are very popular for antivirus and internet security. In my personal situation, I found more virus on my perfectly functioning comp after installing norton antivirus, similarly everything going smoothly till I had installed internet security, that programm just put brakes on my comp, I was getting busier clicking away allow access or deny access and or setting access level and prioties and working less. So I had removed and took blackice which is giving me good results. That program learns through usage and comes with a few basic settings. Never try the stealth mode.
Rgds,
