    Default Can't view PDF web files Reader 6.0

    Hello all.
    using Adobe Reader v6.00, Windows XP SP1, IE v6.
    I cannot view pdf files on the www. No matter which link I click on, I get a
    window with the message:
    "You are not authorised to view this page"
    then some blurb then:
    "HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden
    Internet Explorer"

    I'm sure this is just some configuration error, I previously had no problems
    at all using RTeader v6.0, W2k, IE 5.5, but since (a completely clean: HD
    format etc.) install of XP and re-install of Reader v6.0, I have had this
    problem.
    Reader will open pdf files on my computer, just not those on the web.

    I hope I've given you enough detail to help me,
    Thanks
    Jim

    Incidentally, I have been to the support area on the Adobe site and have
    followed the instructions on the page:
    Configure Internet Explorer or AOL to display PDF files (Acrobat 5.0-6.0 and
    Adobe Reader 5.0-6.0 on Windows)

    One of the suggestions on that page is to save a pdf file onto the HD.
    I have followed those directions and can't do that, either.
    I get an error message saying that:
    "Internet Explorer cannot download (the name of the file) from (site
    address).
    Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested
    site is either unavailable or cannot be found."

    This happens with every pdf file that I try to go to.
    Thanks
    Jim
