Hi,

    When I click on a link to read a PDF file on the web my browser comes up with the pdf file location in address, but doesn't open the PDF file...

   I think I have mapping problems... is that a virus? I have Norton AV

?Bill

PS I can copy the link into my opened PDF Reader 6.0 and it opens with the document...

Hello Bill

You need to turn on the "web integration" feature in Adobe Reader 6. To do this, do the following:

- From within acrobat, choose EDIT, PREFERENCES, INTERNET
- From the INTERNET screen, check the box for "Display PDF in Browser" and click OK
- Exit all instances of Internet Explorer, try a pdf link again.

Thanks

Actually.. I think I had tried to install the full version of Acrobat 5 a while ago and it errored out.. so it may have reassigned something in the registry???

What do you think?

Ok thanks. I suggest you try you do two things:

- First trying to upgrade your current version (ADOBE is recommending this in an advisory). Once you have successfully installed Adobe Reader 6.0.1, you may install the new 6.0.2 update. From within Adobe Reader 6.0.1, go to the Help menu, choose Updates, and follow the instructions.
You need to be an administrator to do tha, once you have done this, reboot machine and check if problem still exsists

- If problem still exsists, uninstall Adobe 6 reader from your computer completely. Reboot your machine and then reinstall the latest version from Adobe's site, located at: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/alternate.html#reader602full
NOTE:
When downloading and make sure you download the "Adobe Reader 6.0.2—English for Windows, 34.7MB" "FULL VERSION" and install it. After the install reboot machine, and test again.

Thanks and Good Luck! :)
