Windows 7: Can't open PDFs

Can't open PDFs

I received the attached message about two weeks ago after being unable to open a simple pdf
from a company.
I unstalled Foxit and installed the latest Acrobat Reader (AR DC?) -- same thing.
Just now I tried to open a pdf of a major software purchase and got the same message.
I've tried various ways to "fix" this, no success. This is very bizarre and frustrating. Your help, please.

Have you tried right-clicking the link for the .pdf file and Save the file to your HDD? Have you tried downloading on a different computer and Save to a USB Thumb/Flash drive?

I'm sitting in front of the monitor trying to figure out how I can adequately thank you, dear Berton. I right clicked and the pdf opened. You have smart brains. ellenc

Can't open PDFs
Can anyone help here?. When I try to download a PDF I get a blank IE screen which after some time comes up with a message that there ia a fault with Adobe Acrobat reader. I've downloaded and installed a new version of Reader and it makes no difference. Sometimes (rarely) it works OK.

PDFs will only print to File
When I try to print a PDF it only will let me print to file. I have Windows 7 Home Premium and Office 2010 Beta. This is a new problem. I cannot locate a Print to File box to uncheck anywhere. I did a repair on Office 2010. Thanks
