    Hay Yall,

    I have a Librarian that has a problem with IE 6. She has to run these reports off everyday in a .PDF format. Every time she clicks on the link it pops up a box that says "Some files can harm your computer. Yak Yak Yak...." She goes to open the file which brings up a new box. Which asks her to select a program to open the file in which is Adobe Reader. It works everytime, but the next time she tries to open the file it makes her go through all the steps. The one thing that caught my eye was the "Always ask before opening this type of file" checkbox and "Always use the selected program to open this file" checkbox are grayed out?? Why are they grayed out? She is an administrator on her computer. It is probably an easy solution but where?

    Thanks in Advance

    Is it just for pdf files ? If so go to start / control panel / folder options / file types / scroll down to pdf and then click on it. Then associate adobe to open it.
