    When I redeive a PDF file and try to read it by clicking on it I get a message stating that I need at least Adobe 8 to load Adobe. I have Adobe ver 9.3.
    The only way I can access the file is to save it, then load Adobe Reader, then open the file in Reader.
    Why this nuisance? Incidentally, it used to work well, but this snag started about 3-6 months ago.
    Adobe Reader is specified as the program to open for PDF files in list of File Types in Folder Options in Contro Panel.

    Hi Ed :

    I am contantly recommending that Users get rid of the malware-prone
    Adobe Reader and instead look into using Foxit Reader, which has a
    FREE Version and a smaller "footprint" and is available at
    http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader .
    For the BEST in what counts in Life :

    Are you trying to launch the attachment from an email client? If so, a local client such as Outlook or Thunderbird, or a webmail program?

    If it will not launch as a local file, you could try updating the registry settings by first switching the program to open to, say, Wordpad, and then switching it back to Adobe Reader. One way to do this is to use the right-click "Open With" dialog.
