Question ID: 309790
My operating system is Windows 98. I am unable to open any pdf attachment. I have only had this trouble since I had a new harddrive installed recently. When I try to go to a pdf attachment of a website or email, a box comes up warning me of lack of security in such. When I ask to go ahead anyway another box comes up asking me which file I wish to use to retrieve said attachment. There are many, many listed. I not only do not know which to use, I do not wish to make that choice each time. Before my recent work on my computer, this was apparently set as a default or automatic or something. I would like to have that again. What do I do? Bob.

Hi Bob, Based on your descriptions, I believe you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your system because you're using a new hard drive. That's the reason why you can't open pdf files because there's no software to open them. Don't worry, since you can connect to the Internet, you only need to download and install the program via the link below. Adobe Systems Incorporated Adobe® Reader® http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html You can also download it through the following links by right-clicking on a link and choosing "Save Target As..." Please choose one version only. Adobe® Reader® 6.0.1, Basic Version http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/6.x/6.0/enu/AdbeRdr60_enu.exe Adobe® Reader® 6.0.1, Full Version http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/6.x/6.0/enu/AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe Please follow the program instructions when installing. Thank you very much for being a frequent user of Google Answers. I hope this helps you. Should you have any comments/questions, please feel free to post your clarification before rating this and I'll attend to you as soon as possible. Thanks for asking. Best regards, Feilong

Worked perfectly. I always enjoy working out my problems on Google Answers. That way I don't have to look anyone in the eye that is probably thinking, "Just how dumb is this guy?" Thanks, Bob.
