Windows 7: Cant open pdf from site even tho I turned off pop-up blocker

06 May 2012   #11

Windows7 64

Oops - was looking at the wrong computer when I did the winver.

It's 6.1 build 7600

Not really looking to do updates here. I did updates about a month ago, and the key here is I am NOT updating to IE9.

Anything else I can do? In the meantime, I found that this works ok in FFox. Any way to get this working in IE?

Do the updates.

You want a solid and reliable system without troubles, that requires a full and 100% updated Win 7.

Karl is just trying to help you help him. An updated system eliminates a lot of herrings.

On the other hand, you could simply try two different approaches to your issue at hand.... and then take Karl's advice to upgrade.
  • Try a right mouse click on the link and download it to your computer - then open it locally
  • Set your bank address as a trusted site in IE - It's your bank, you should trust their site... they have your money.
    Control Panel/Internet Options, on the security tab, click the Trusted Sites check-mark and then click the "sites" button - add your banks URL in the box.
    You can uncheck the HTTPS requirement box at the bottom if the bank URL is vanilla HTTP. I always recheck it after I add a site that doesn't use HTTPS.
Good luck!

Oops - that should have been update and it should have referenced what to update.

Karl said update to Windows 7 SP1. I suppose that could also be considered an upgrade, but I think of upgrades as moving up from Vista to Windows 7 or maybe even moving up from Home to Professional. That's not what Karl (or I) is/are suggesting - just get on the current Windows Service Pack - easily done through Windows Update.

I don't think upgrading to IE 9 was mentioned, but I'll read it again, just in case. Maybe it was offered in WU.
