Sounds like a protected document.
Yes i have seen this in several PDF.
To know for sure open the PDF
In the top menu Click "document"
then move the mouse to "security" a menu will show to the right
click "show security properties"
This will show you what you can and can't do with the pfd
ie print, copy test, etc.
(this is in Adobe version 8)
Hope this helps
Thank you for helping. Now i know that this behaviour is not due to an error.
Thanks for the reply. I was having the same problem. I was able to go to the security settings and see that it was protected. It will not enable me to change, it but I assume there is a reason for that. Is it safe to say if I need to copy the document I need to get the author to change it?

Yes. It is safe to say that.
I am unable to remove adobe reader 7.0.9 that came as a 30 day free trial with Gateway computer 2 years ago. When I tried to remove it insteaad of being removed a duplicate of it was installed.
I have windows xp pro o/s. Also I now get popups of a adobe.com folder with about 5 files in it.
When I click on remove from the cootrol panel the error message is something about the program is on a network that is not accessable.
This has made a mess of this computer along with active X that tries to install automatically and I do not want it.
I have tried to get help from gateway and my ISP but they do not know what to do and refer me to Adobe where I do not find any support.
It seems as if I am a victim of a dirty trick conspiracy between gateway and adobe.

Something wrong here. Adobe Reader is free and permanent - there is no
30 day free trial for it, no need of one.
Sounds to me as if the free trial might have been of Acrobat
When you tried to remove it, what exactly did you do?
On a simular topic, is there any way to get access to modify a protected document? Of course assuming that the person who protected it gave you permision.
>On a simular topic, is there any way to get access to modify a protected document? Of course assuming that the person who protected it gave you permision.
They give you permission and a password, then you open the file in
Acrobat (not Reader), go to File > Properties and change Protection
Method to "None". This is when you are asked for the password.
When I tried to remove Adobe reader 7.0.9 it goes to 99.90% and I get an error window stating something needed is on a network resource.
The second time I tried to remove it a duplicate of the version showed up in the control panel.
It probably was the pro version that was the 30 day free trial. Turned out not to be a free trial considering the headaches that came with it.
This computer also had a trial of windows XP office. The O/S is XP pro.
I am 86 years old and I have had no computer training. My wife bought this computer for the 2 of us.
I am almost always stuck at home except to go shopping once every 2 weeks. I shop online and lately many things I am interested in use Adobe reader. If there is any mention of active x I close the window because that does not work for me either.
When I received an email That contained important info in adobe on what I had to do in 2 days I decided to get help from a pro.
He worked on my problem for more than 2 hours and now has it working.
I was not able to find any real help here but I realize I had a big problem.
