Office 2000 users, as well as users of Windows 2000 SP4 and later, can convert Open XML Formats to binary file formats from within Windows Explorer.

Installation Recommendations:
Make sure your antivirus is disabled before installing Adobe Reader. Uninstall any older versions of Adobe Acrobat before installing new version - otherwise both versions will be on the hard drive taking up space. If you don't uninstall the old version and then decide to, the new version will have to be reinstalled.

If the PDF file doesn't appear (blank window)
Open Adobe Reader (located in the programs menu), select 'EDIT' from the toolbar, then 'PREFERENCES', followed by 'INTERNET', select 'display PDF in browser'.
