Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 151298

Hello everyone,

I just installed Adobe Reader 7.0.8. I went to a webpage and clicked on a link to a PDF. It was a 3-page PDF, and when it finished loading up on my screen, I clicked the Print button.

To my utter astonishment, it had printed out 3 pages of the webpage!

I did exactly the same thing again to be sure: clicked on the link to the PDF, waited for it to load up - then, while it was loading, I saw the briefest flash in the Internet Explorer status bar that said "altavista..." (the rest was cut off because the window was small).

What on earth could be causing this? I have never visited in my life! If anyone could shed some light on this, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks! manky.
