Adobe Acrobat 6 reader- odd problem

  newearwax 10:45 18 Sep 04

Most timees when I download a pdf file from a known site I choose open rather than save but with one site the option results in a message ' There was an error opening the document/file cannot be found' If I choose 'save' then the file opens normally with the reader.

I've also noticed that the open/save dialog box lists the file as xxx.pdf but at the same time lists the file as 'unknown file type'

Has any one any clues as to wht is happening and if I can do anything at my end to solve the problem? It would be quite useful as the site in question has numerous pdf files that I might want to access. Thanks.

Try uninstalling then re-installing Adobe Reader.

Thanks: it worked but can't understand why it was only that particular site that acted up in the way it did, Ah sweet mystery of computers!
