    I think I need to tweek something on my PC (Vista home premium). When
    trying to open folders/ files from a cd (from a magazine for example)
    all i get is a load of computer jargon, not an ilustration or what ever
    it should be. Any ideas please?

    Thanks MCC

    You might try showing us the full file names of some of the files
    you're having trouble opening so we can check what programs
    should be able to open them.

    Thank you Miles,, All I have to go on is, when the comp jargon i
    displayed, the first line is "PDF-1.3"
    Don't know if that is of any use to you.
    Regards

    I haven't seen that error message before. However, many of the files
    I've seen with file names ending in .pdf would not open until I installed
    a PDF reader program. I chose this one, partly because it's free:

    http://get.adobe.com/reader/

    If you are still using the Windows Mail program that comes with Vista,
    I do NOT recommend installing the Free Google Toolbar - it often
    stops Windows Mail from running properly.

    Thank you Miles, have repaired Adobe and taken out the Toolbar, no time
    to check the results just now, but will try later.
