.pdf files do not load.

When I access a .pdf file online all I get is a blank page with a place holder in the upper left corner.

I am using Windows ME, IE 6, Adobe 6.

Earlier restore points no help. This problem only started a couple of days ago. S&D and NAV report no pests or viruses.

Any help to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Have a great day.

If you've installed Acrobat Reader, run that and UNCHECK the WEB INTEGRATION item. I know of no fix for that issue, so please do not ask. I only know the workaround.

When you want to view a .pdf file from a web page, instead of clicking on the link to the file with the left mouse button, which is supposed to open the document, use the right mouse button. When the menu opens, select Save As and then save the file to your hard drive. You can then view it offline with Acrobat Reader. There is no fix available from MS for the problem you described.
