I click on the specific link, it then opens a new tab, but instead of opening the pdf file, it then displays a message 'this tab is being recovered', followed by the following error message screen

We were unable to return you to wordpress.com.

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Cannot Install Adobe Reader

Everytime i try to install adobe reader i get a box with the following message "this installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package" i have tried downloading via links to adobe from a variety of sites (including windows) and the same thing happens every time. The file appears to transfer but won't install.

Intriguingly, on the adobe site, along with adobe reader , you are offered a free download of a google toolbar - i did not want this but forgot to cancel it; the adobe download manager showed the two items being downloaded simultaneously - the toolbar is there on my desk top but no adobe!

Problem With Adobe Reader 8 And Ie8

I've been using explorer 8 and adobe reader 8 together for months, with no problem. In the past there's been no problem with opening a pdf document from explorer or directly from the desktop.

I'm not aware of any changes to my computer recently, though automatic updates is turned on, so i wouldn't be aware of everything i suppose. I do think that the problem i'm encountering is associated with a recent explorer update, though.

Here's my problem:

When i try to run adobe reader 8 from the desktop or open a pdf document in explorer, i get the following error message:

Invalid plugin detected. Adobe reader will quit

When i click ok, another message appears:

The instruction at "0x2d830cbc" referenced memory at "0x00000008". The memory could not be "read". Click ok to terminate the program.

(The quotation marks aren't mine, they're part of the error message. )

I'm using xp sp3, adobe reader 8, and explorer 8

I have reinstalled reader 8 from the adobe website, but the problem persists. I hope someone can suggest a fix.

Print Preview Error - Printing To Adobe Pdf

Print preview error - occurs when printing to adobe pdf print driver. I purchased a new computer with windows 7 pro. When i try to print a web page (ie 8) using print preview, "as selected on screen", shrink to 85%, then print to adobe pdf print driver, the ie 8 page got stuck. So i have to end task it all the time.
 
However, if i try it with different browsers, it prints with no problem. I tried sfc /scannow, checkdisk, disabling add-on programs, but did not work. Add/remove programs does not show ie 8, so i can not uninstall/reinstall it. Is there any way to install ie 8 fresh on windows 7 pro?

When we click on various links such the bill pay link on our credit union site, nothing happens when we do it on our desktop pc. There is no message, box or anything . Just no response whatsoever.

Printing To Email From Word Perfect Or Pdf Files

After the recent automatic upgrades to my computer, it's changed a lot of things about the start up. I don't like them but can live with them if i have to, although i don't see why i should. I had no problems like this with my xp system. It was much more stable and i didn't have to do cartwheels every time i started it up. I absolutely hate windows 7.

Also, after the upgrades went into effect, i could not open and print word perfect documents or pdf files from e-mail when i could before. I have word perfect and adober acrobat on my computer. What did you change and how do i fix your problem?

Opening Files With The Correct Program

I have done something to my laptop and i am not sure how i did it. I tried to open a pdf file and it would not open. I proceeded with trying to open it with adobe reader. I figured out later that the reason it did not open is because the original file could not be found. The original file was on a flash drive. Anyways, the problem is now when i try to open a file it tries to open with the adobe reader and all the icons on my desktop are the adobe reader icon.

I think when i tried to open that specific file using "open with" it changed everything. My question is: is their a way to change it to where the files will automatically open with the program they are supposed to? Is it something simple or will i need to seek professional help?

Problem Opening Files On Server

We have a small network; windows 2008 sbs and 10 workstations. 2 of the workstations are running windows 7 enterprise. Only those 2 workstations that are running windows 7 are having the following problem:intermittently, when attempting to open files from the server (word and excel definitely, possibly other types) explorer will lock up. The document will not load. Only way to break out of it is to use task manager to kill explorer.exe and then reboot. Ll workstations and the server are updated with current ms updates. We don't have any errors in event logs when this issue occurs. We've disabled antivirus to no avail. Any ideas on what to look for?

I cannot use any other source to get into my company files other than ie mozilla google they will not be accepted.

Opening .sln Files With Visual Basic

I am trying to mod a game (half life 2) when i stumbled upon this type of file - . Sln, i have been told that windows visual opens it, so i downloaded microsoft visual express version. After installing, my computer told me that it needed to restart before it can take effect, except once i restarted, i couldn't find the program. I guess to sum it up- how do i open microsoft visual basic (i know i've installed it correctly) and secondly-  is there a program already installed on my computer that can open . Sln files?

Autorun.inf Help With Opening Txt Files

I have always been using autorun files, but i decided to discover more features that it has to offer. Anyone who has any experience knows what this code does:

Shell\setup\command=setup.exe
Shell\setup=run setup

Does anyone know how to open something like a text file instead of the executable? I've tried doing this:

Shell\text\command=class.txt
Shell\text=open text file

But that just gave me an error. Does anyone know how i could set that up, and if its even possible.

Problem Saving / Opening Files In Explorer & Programs

I have problem saving and opening files in windows explorer and third-party programs. I've been having this problem for a couple of months now and it's very annoying for example, when i use the snipping tool in windows 7 the files will not save so i have to take a print screen of that and open it with more software. Also, when i download files in firefox and other things, clicking 'open file location' does absolutely nothing. I assume these two issues are related as they started occurring around the same time.

Cannot Use Flash Reader

In windows 7 (32 bit) ie8, adobe flash reader is ok if i log on as id "administrator, " but as any other user, even a member of administrators group, cannot use the flash reader. First, this problem began when i upgraded to windows 7 from windows vista. I was already running ie8 before the upgrade and all was well.

After the upgrade i can't make flash work in ie not matter what i do-unless i'm logged on as the administrator. I have uninstalled (using adobe's uninstall option), rebooted (or not) and reinstalled more times than a chicken has feathers-no help from any combination i could find or think of.

Yes, i've been through ie8's "manage addons" until i've worn the paint off my keyboard-no help there either. I've tried all kinds of reduced ie security settings-no joy. I've tried turning off the windows firewall to see if it was the culprit-nothing. Flash does work in firefox, chrome, etc. , But-call me crazy-i'd really like to continue using ie if i can get this flash problem fixed. (Example site to see it fail is bbc.com and hit any of their movies. )

I believe the problem is that even though i am logged on as a member of the administrator's group, i am not allowed to make any changes in the registry. Hence, flash . Ocx registration and certain other registry-changing programs will not work except when i am logged on as the administrator.

The flash 10 . Ocx file doesn't look as if it installed when i'm not "administrator" but it is installed because it works perfectly when i am the administrator. I've tried uninstall, reboot, then run the flash 10 installer as administrator, too-no change in the situation. So is there a way to tell windows 7 that it's ok for me to change the registry-preferably not just for flash but for all programs-even though i'm not the administrator?  Or is there a known way to fix this little undocumented feature. (Search for it-i'm definitely not alone with this problem. )

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

When i log into my utility provider web site to view my bill, internet explorer 8 opens a window and tries to down load the pdf file but just sits doing nothing. I have adobe reader 9 installed and if i try a different browser the pdf file is displayed correctly even with my anti virus active and i can print and save the file so the problem is obviously ie8. I have checked the settings etc but cannot see any thing obvious that is stopping the file from opening. Have tried shutting down my anti virus to see if this is affecting it but it has no effect.

Microsoft Reader Activation Issue

In 2007, i didn't realize the importance of saving my windows live id / microsoft passport id & password in a safe place. I assumed i'd always remember it. Duh. Now i have over 500 books on a laptop that's slowly dying and no way to remember my id / what hotmail or other e-mail address i used to establish it. Purchased new laptop but unable to load books as do not have id / password info. Is there any way to find this info on my hard drive or within the microsoft reader application itself?
