Please tell us your OS and your version of Reader. Don't type in all
caps, it is thought of as shouting considered impolite.
I've got the same problem.
I can download and read the PDF file from other websites except for HECO.COM
I am using adobe reader 6.0 with win98 @ work.
I am using Adobe 8.0 with XP home @ home.
Both gives the same error.
Heco says it's not their end, Suggested I uninstall, and reinstall. Same problem.
If you can read forms from all sites except heco, then it is likely a
heco problem. Can you supply a link for a pdf for us to check.
I tried the following:
and could download and read no problem. However, the file requires
Reader 7 or higher so your Reader 6 would not work.
Hi All, I'm having trouble reading PDFs.
I have windows vista and have down loaded Adobe Reader 9 but am having trouble with reading PDFs from the web.
When the PDFs are opened I get the following message:
Select the encoding that makes your document readable.
0Windows Default 0Ms-Dos 0 Other Encoding
On the right there is then another group I can select from in conjunction with one of the three listed above.
It does not matter which of the three I choose or what I choose in conjunction with the first three eg Windows Default, the PDF is always unreadable.
What I've done:
I've rung microsoft and they've said its an Adobe Reader issue;
I've uninstalled Adobe 9 Reader and reinstalled it from the net;
I've turned off my block on popups.
Can anyone help?
Ive found an answer from another website.
Open your IE browser
Click on Tools
Scroll down to security
Uncheck "Do not save encrypted pages to disk"

I have had a similar problem for months. It is truly aggrevating! I have Win98se w/Adobe Reader 6.0 and it is seldom that I can download a pdf file directly from the WEB site. I have had to contact the company and have them send me the pdf file directly...then I can save it to disk and read it but the process is a PITA.
Pardon my shouting but.......
SURELY ADOBE CAN EASILY PUT A FIX IN 6.0 TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
There is no way that I am going to either buy a newer computer or install a newer OS just so that I can have this convienience of instant download. I want a way to download the pdf file and save it to disk. I am not offered that option when trying to obtain a pdf file from a WEB site. I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS THIS PROBLEM as witnessed by the above letters. As the "owner" of other first rate Adobe products, I am appalled that you have left us hanging without an option (guess what: Reader 7.0 cannot be installed if I am using Win98se)
Please do something about this, Adobe.
I don't speak for Adobe, but I can tell you with certainty: there
will be no fixes to 6.0, 7.0, or 8.0 (except security fixes). Ever.
I'm surprised you can't download PDF files directly. Why not? What
happens when you try to download, instead of view?
Have you tried the suggestions in reply #5 above?
It worked for me.
