Topic: Prevent Save/Print on Web

I know this is a rehashed subject, but I'm hoping for some clarification...
I have PDF's that I'm serving up over the web. The idea is to prevent visitors from IMMEDIATELY saving or printing the PDF. I know the PDF is downloaded to the browser cache when the PDF is requested (this is no concern). But I want to prevent the visitor from saving a copy elsewhere or printing directly from the viewer.
I can make the following assumptions: user must have a certain viewer (pref. Acrobat Reader or Full), application-controlled security access to docs (no need for pw-protected PDF).
A) Is this possible? I've done a lot of reading and most people say that you cannot disable the Save or Print buttons on Acrobat Reader.
B) Can I disable the toolbar at least?
C) Is there a setting in the document itself (created with Acrobat 5 full version) that I'm missing that does this.
D) OR is there another viewer besides Acrobat that lets you control these settings, or better yet prevent download at all?
Any help much appreciated...
