    The first 2 links are broken. I suspect you copied the link once logged into the RINA website?...if so, there's the problem. Only those with memberships to log into the site can access the online version.

    That's odd because I have been accessing them for several years.

    No the links are fine, just slowwwwww! They are PDF's and I can get them without logging in (I'm not a member!) They are around 5 meg and the site is slow, that may explain any trouble you are having.

    Cheers

    Do you have a pdf handler installed? The Adobe Acrobat plugin or Nitro? If so does it work with other downloadable PDFs?

    I tried on my laptop which is running Win.7 and IE...it works....i also tried using Firefox on this desktop (which is running on XP Pro)...it works....but when i use my deflaut IE (on XP Pro)...it doesn't??

    Yes, pdf on other sites work ok???

    IE opens up another window...says the web page is being recovered...and then crashes to the page shown above...most weird?

    The %20 characters in the URL represent spaces, that may be giving you trouble, once upon a time spaces where not handled at all, now they are but there are some legacy issues there in some circumstances. It is best practice not to have spaces in URL's but people do it!

    Just a guess!

    Most odd...i have noticed that all links to site with pdf..no longer opens/works??..Ive just tried other sites with links.

    This was working ok a few days ago..so something has changed in my IE. No idea what??
    I know new upgrades are downloaded automatically now...so perhaps IE has changed a setting I'm not aware of?

    Sorted.

    Must have been an auto-update.:mad::mad:

    I went here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/
    clicked the "..Fix Internet Explorer add-on problems when IE hangs or freezes.."..spotted some script thingy.

    And now I can open pdf links again :)
