Windows XP Professional sp2 machine
when opening two pdfs from a website links receive the error, "there was an error opening this document. this file cannot be found"
If you save the file to the pc, then open the .pdf it opens ok
other pdfs open ok from browser from same website and different websites
had customer try on another's machine; the two pdfs opened ok
tried Adobe Reader 8.1, 9.0, and Adobe Professional 8.0
uninstalled reader and professional; deleted directories; reinstalled reader and professional(placed into a separate directory); same error
On the machine tried admin accounts, under customer's profile made admin account, renamed the customer's account so that another account was freshly generated, all generated the same error.
Ran ccleaner to clean up files in the registry and temporary internet files, then repaired adobe - same error
repaired internet explorer - same error
scoured web for same error but most were applications trying to open the pdfs, a few errors were for programming php, a lot of questions but few answers in context of current issue. the ccleaner and repairing ie were resolutions i found on the web.
nothing was listed in msoft's ie knowledgebased searched.
I get the same message when I try to open a pdf attachment in my free AOL e-mail account. This problem just started today for some unknown reason. I have Adobe Reader 9 and never had a problem before. If I forward e-mails with a pdf attachment to my Road Runner account, I can open it with no problem. I can't seem to find any answers to this problem. Frustrating! HELP!!!
