What does the popup actually say? Is it indicating that your pdf reader is not working or is it a plugin in your browser thats not working?

Sorry Bonz, I may have mislead you. I get a window saying that the site is unavailable but it seems to be happening when there is a PDF involved e.g getting the RTA download on what the regs are for A frame towing

Hi wigger, no worries, and I do believe the word is mislead.

Hope you get it sorted

There are a few possibilities. One problem is that sometimes the links inserted forums are not 100% correct. You will often see a FollowUp posting the correct link following the one with the bum link in it. Look for extra characters inserted at the end of link or bits missing.

Another problem is the web is for ever changing. It does happen that a site is changed or deleted within hours of a message being posted. The link is then dead.

If you copy and paste your problem links in a reply here some of us can analyse them and possibly give you some better info.

My guess is that you are actually downloading the PDF's to your temp folder or wherever you have set your browser to save downloads.
If you use Firefox you can see which folder it is by clicking Tools>Options>Main>Downloads. If you tick 'Show the Downloads window when downloading a file', you can access it from there.

I don't use Internet Explorer, but I imagine it is similar in IE.

Cheers
