  1. unable to open any downloads like PDF files.


    I have been having problems with my Lenovo laptop where it isn't letting me open any files what so ever. it always says virus detected. I am a college student and I need some files to open in order for me to do my work. I tried searching in setting if there was anything that I had clicked without me realizing, but nothing is wrong with the settings. does anyone know how to solve this problem? pls let me know. I am frustrated as to why I cant open any files and downloads of any pdf.

    :)

  2. Unable to download or open PDF file.

    Unable to download or open PDF file.

    - a PDF file was sent to from a Hotmail email: I'm unable to download the file from the mail app, when downloaded from the web client, the file is unable to open.

    - When i forward the file to a gmail account it open just fine.

    So the problem doesn't lie with the file but with the Microsoft mail services

    Any advices on what cause the issues ? ? ? or how to resolve it ? ?

  3. Trouble Opening PDF's

    Hi Parker,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • Does the issue persist in Edge browser?
    • Do you get similar error when you open the PDF file in Adobe reader?


    Check if you are facing similar issue in Edge browser.



    Step 1: Open PDF file in Adobe reader and check if you are facing similar issue.



    To open PDF file directly from Adobe reader, follow the steps below:



    • Open Adobe application and click on Edit.
    • Click on Preferences and select Internet.
    • Uncheck Display PDF in Browser option and check if you are able to open the PDF file without getting the error code.


    Step 2: If you are able to open PDF file in Adobe reader, I suggest you to
    Turn off Internet Explorer,
    enable it again and check if the issue is resolved.



    For further assistance, I suggest you to post your query in Adobe support forum.

    Unable to open PDF file directly from WINZIP file

    Thanks for the help. I tried the suggested steps. It did not work for me. When clicked on pdf files, now it opens with acrobat reader as opposed to Edge. But then I still cannot open pdf files directly form zip file.
