My laptop is about a month old and I haven't been able to look at pdf files. I'm using windows 7 64bit and browsing with mozilla firefox. I downloaded adobe reader but I still can't view pdf files. When I open a pdf file, I just get a blank window and a smaller blank adobe reader window that just has a ok button. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

How did you fix it?

Probably by reinstalling reader.

Probably by reinstalling reader.

I actually reinstalled it a couple of times before but it still wouldn't work. I guess the third time was the charm. Thanks again.

Not that you need to now, but...

FWIW, Firefox has some nice third-party PDF apps / plug-ins, check their site.

Adobe is a bloated pig - uninstall it and download the free Foxit reader instead. You will thank me ;)
