Any one that has a useful comment about how to fix this please don't hesitate to answer.

The main problem is that I can not download, and every time I try to a page of gibberish pops up as a new window, this also happens when I go to open *.pdf file to read online.

PS. I use Internet Explorer, not netscape.

you need adobe acrobat to read .pdf files

use this link to download:


or you may have a cd from pcworld nz that has a copy on it!!

My suggestion is to download and install the Adobe Acrobat Reader software (currently at v5.1). This is available from Acrobat Reader (http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html), note approximate download size is 8.6Mb - 13.4Mb depending on the options you wish to select {basic is 8.6Mb})

Cheers, Babe.
