Adobe Reader X problem

I use W7. When I download some pdf docs the usual Print, Copy &c icons are missing from the top left of the screen. I found them near the bottom of the screen but only visible as the mouse pointer passes over them; they are all greyed out & clicking on one has no effect. Does anyone know what is wrong or what i'm missing?

Try uninstall/reinstall of Adobe X

It may be that these PDF's have security on them that prevents copying, printing etc. If Adobe Reader X is working with other PDF's I suspect this might be the case.

Thanks northumbria61 but I've tried that. I did wonder if the originator had some method of preventing copying/printing but I didn't know if that's possible Taff.

Yes it can be done quite easily. As with all security it may be circumvented but for your purposes look at this blog. Workaround
