PDF troubles

  1. This is a very bizarre issue that I have never encountered before. Whenever I try and open a PDF in a web-browser, it suddenly populates hundreds of tabs and eventually freezes the machine entirely. I first thought the obvious and ran a virus scan, only to detect no viruses. Has anyone ever encountered this before???

    Never encountered

    I have never encountered that before but you may want to either uninstall the PDF reader and re-install or change to another version of the PDF Reader
