        Workaround 2 (for Windows XP)

        Configure Internet Explorer to prompt to save PDF files to disk. Then open the PDF file using your preferred PDF reader. Use Folder Options -> File Types to reset this.

        1. Go to Control Panel
        2. Click Folder Options
        3. Go to File Types
        4. Scroll to PDF in list
        5. Click PDF
        6. Click Advanced
        7. If 'Save as' is not in the 'Actions box', click New
        8. Type 'Save as' in Action box, click OK
        9. Click OK
        10. Click Apply
        11. Click OK

        Workaround 3 (for Windows Vista)

        Configure the default PDF reader.

        1. Verify default program for PDF files
        2. Right-click on the PDF file that is already saved to your local disk
        3. Choose, Open With...
        If Internet Explorer is listed as the 'Recommended Programs', do the following:
        1. Mark checkbox, 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
        2. Click Browse
        3. Find Adobe Reader 8.0 (default location - Adobe\reader 8.0\reader\acrord32.exe)
        4. Highlight this .exe
        5. Click Open
        6. Click OK
        Check to see that Adobe Reader is now listed as the 'Recommended Program' for this type of file.
