Open any offline .pdf file with adobe reader and see if it opens OK. If it does then the problem is probably with the browser setup. Please follow these steps to solve this problem:
Close your internet browser windows before proceeding. Uninstall adobe reader 7 completely and restart your computer.
Download the latest version of adobe reader.
Before installing the reader close all internet browser windows (it is important).
Install adobe reader.
Also update your internet browser.

Cannot access website


Why can't I view some websites?
Applies to Windows 7
If you can access some websites but not all of them, here are some possible causes:
  • Your browser could be attempting to connect through a proxy server. If so, try connecting with the proxy server turned off.
  • Your browser connection settings could be incorrect. To change connection settings, follow these steps:
    1. Open Internet Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Internet Options.
    2. Click the Connections tab.

  • Your router could be attempting to proxy DNS requests and failing. Refer to the documentation that came with your router for instructions on disabling DNS proxying.
  • Parental Controls, Family Safety, or some other parental control software could be blocking access to certain websites.

Which browser are you using? Internet Explorer? Mozilla Firefox? Opera? Google Chrome? Safari?

If you are using internet explorer: Click Tools/View/Text Size and change it.

If you don't see tools at the top of your browser on a line that says File/Edit/View/Favorites/Tools/Help look for tools over on the right then click it and select Toolbars, then select Menu Bar and it will stay at the top of the browser so you can just click Tools/View/Text Size

If you have Windows 7 press and hold the ALT key for the menu bar to appear at the top of the browser.

I am facing problem in downloding PDF files from internet, so how to solve?


What problem are you facing?

Downloading PDF files is no different from downloading other files.

Of course, you'll need Adobe Reader (or something similar) to be able to "view" the PDF file, after you have downloaded it. Access: http://www.adobe.com to access the download Adobe Reader 9.3 for Windows.

Cannot get to my email vie IE8 or chrome, this started in feb.


you have stated the exact problem but try this one:

(this applies to all windows OS)
after opening the internet explorer,
click tools
click internet options
click advance tab
click reset (not the reset advance. you should also close any program, application or browser except the ie that you opened up for the reset)
after that close the browser and open it up again, try to access your email.

if that doesnt work, if you are using windows XP you could try to uninstall the IE8 so you can go back to IE7.

click start
click control panel
click add/remove program
find the IE8 then click uninstall after that restart computer>

try again access your email
i hope this helps.
Pls rate my resolution thanks!

Open up Internet Options (from the Tools menu in IE or right-clicking the desktop icon and selecting Properties, or through the Control Panel). On the Connections tab, select 'Never dial a connection.' When you want to connect to your ISP you will be required to manually start the dial-up connection.
