  1. I run into a problem the other day. I tried to download a manual in adobe format, when I clicked on the download button a new window came up that was blank except the very top lefthand corner there was a little square box with a red x in it and nothing ever happened. I tried more than one file and got the same thing. I have also seen the same thing in Hotmail, but can still read the message.
    Thanks, help would be appreciated
