    I went to download something off the internet, and I always get that suspisious file screen, I say OK and then I get a 2nd download screen saying where do you want to download to. I chose word instead of acrobat and the little check box at the bottom was checked that said always download to this program. Now when I download anything it goes right into word and comes up all encrypted. I don't even get the second dialog box to choose anymore. I already tried to go into my computer and change the file types, but that didn't work. Any suggestions?

    I am assumeing this is Internet Explorer what you could do which mite work is go to:
    tools
    internet options
    programs tab
    click on "reset web settings"
    then go to advanced tab
    click on "reset defaults"

    hope that helps.
