    I have a question.running Windows XP SP-3 and I think Adobe Reader 9. All updates are installed:

    When I download a PDF file, I get a message in IE 8's info bar. "To protect your security, IE blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options."

    When I click the Info bar to say 'Download File", nothing happens. But if I click on the PDF file on-line a second time, it opens. I think I used to be able to just click "Download File" once and than it downloaded.

    It seems to be the same way with the Pop-Up Blocker, I have to Temporarily allow pop ups (always from trusted sites) and than click a second time to allow the pop-ups to show. Comments?
