I cannot open a file downloaded in Adobe. This is the error message: "Paint cannot read this file. This is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported." I get the same message when I try to open saved adobe files or files that have just been downloaded. I think the downloading is ok as I get the message that the file has downloaded. But, I am not able to open it. Paint is elicited instead. I am using a windows operating system and firefox for a browser. Does anyone have some hints to pass on? I don't know where to begin.
Sounds like you do not have Adobe Reader installed on your computer.
Can you open any of those PDFs from within Reader?
What do you mean by "Adobe files"?
What is your operating system?
