Can anyone help. Running W7 and unable to open or save PDF files such as online bank statements and insurance documents.Same problem with various sites. I have Kaspersky Internet Security which I have tried temp suspending to see if that was problem but that made no difference. I have another laptop running Vista with same security progam and I can open /download the same files with no problem.

What programme are you using to open the PDF files? If it is Adobe then you might want to try Foxit instead

I assume you have Adobe reader installed? PS if you do not want Google Chrome, untick this box on the link. Also I assume you have "Told" W7 to open pdf files with adobe reader?

I have checked my W7 IE 9. I have Adobe Readder 10.1.2.45 installed. In IE9 Tools/Manage Add ons/ Toolbars it States that this is enabled. Have you checked your settings?
