Issues IE8 in opening PDF File


Hello Carla Santos.

The error comes from FileOpen PDF Control.  It is an encryptor for protecting PDF files from unauthorized copying, printing, editing, etc.  To open FileOpen-encrypted PDF files, a plug-in needs to be installed for Acrobat Reader.  Based on your screenshot, it is FileOpen that is generating the error, not IE nor Adobe Reader.

To fix it, try reinstalling the FileOpen plug-in.

Here is a list of establishments using FileOpen PDF Control on their PDF files:

If you download PDF files from their sites, then you should keep the FileOpen plug-in.  If not, you can remove it if it’s giving you problems.

Hope this helps.
