If you can't save it at all, it could be due to an invalid filename (Too long or contains an invalid character) and the error you're getting is simply incorrect.

Not to doubt you, but the location you're saving to is on the drive with heaps of space, right? Haven't accidentally selected a bad location (or unsupported name, as Agent suggests)?

Thank you for the suggestions.

Check disc is ok
Tried different file names.
Tried different locations.
Recycle bin is clear.

The problem seems to be only with Adobe Reader.
Version is 10.1.4

This is the same system in this thread.

Uninstall Adobe Reader

Download Adobe Reader X

Install Adobe Reader X

Any better?

I don't understand. You said you can't download a PDF.

I assume you are downloading it from the Internet with a web browser, in which case what has Adobe reader got to do with it?

Looking at installed programs, it would appear Adobe Reader X is installed already.

Well yeah, but you have to download it first before you can open it.

Or are you opening it and downloading it at the same time inside the web browser with the adobe reader plugin or such? Just trying to figure out what program is actually giving the error

Using IE8 & Google to locate the file.
In this case a user guide for a digital projection clock.
The file downloads & views in Adobe.
When you try to save it, the warning comes up.
Have since downloaded & saved the file on another system.
Then moved it via network to the problem system, where it opens ok.

How about rather than clicking the link which opens the pdf into Acrobat reader add on for IE, right click the link on the webpage and choose save target as, and then save to your hard drive. Sound like something funky up with Acrobat?

Might work but have got the file now.
Does appear be to some sort of compatibility issue between IE & Adobe.
And only on that system.
Probably get sorted in the next updates.
