Hi. I'm not sure where to post this topic... I am having problems with viewing any files after downloading them. They are mostly pdf. files. When the download is complete my computer tries to open them with windows picture and fax viewer and it cannot view them. I have tried accessing the files through the internet, but that doesn't work either. I don't know if it's a problem with my computer or some formatting problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

After downloading any file...Windows must have the program that relates to opening said file, that program must be installed already...or Windows will not be able to open the file.

For .pdf files, I find the Foxit Reader to be a good install: http://download.cnet.com/Foxit-Reader/3000...amp;tag=button/

Once this program is installed, simply right-click on any .pdf file you have...and select Foxit Reader as the program you want to always open .pdf files.
