I bought a new laptop recently with Windoes 7. (Never used Vista so I might have missed something I need to tweak) It seems as though a lot of links I hit these days are PDF forms. On this new computer, when I click a link it shows the PDF form load, gives me a pop up box simply saying ADOBE and an OK button to press. When I press the button everything just goes away! The only way I can see this stuff is if I "Save as" and obviously that's no good! Any advice?

Have you actually installed the Adobe Reader?

Adobe Reader would work... but i really don't recommend it.
I recommend using Foxit Reader. This can be found here
its small (doesn't install extra crap adobe does) and doesn't have the security issues that adobe has been having recently
