Safe Reading Mode ?

    With IE7, when I have a pdf open, and sometimes other docs, and click on a
    link, a message pops up that the operation is not allowed in "Safe Reading
    Mode." What is that, and how do I change the properties? I have a lot of
    safety selections going on but never encountered this one until the past
    week.

    Using Secunia, and MS Security Essentials with others updated weekly (not
    all being used daily); adaptive software for the blind. Secunia is only
    program that starts on start-up. eml is only file ext that is omitted in
    Security Essentials.

    Thank you, as usual.

    Sounds like it. Run Foxit, go to Tools > Preferences..., click 'Trust Manager' in
    the left-hand list and uncheck 'Enable Safe Reading Mode'.

    Adobe's playing catch-up...

    <QP>
    Introducing Adobe Reader Protected Mode

    ....Scheduled for inclusion in the next major version release of Adobe
    Reader, [sic] Protected Mode is a sandboxing technology based on Microsoft’s
    Practical Windows Sandboxing technique. It is similar to the Google Chrome
    sandbox and Microsoft Office 2010 Protected Viewing Mode...

    With Adobe Reader Protected Mode enabled (it will be by default), all
    operations required by Adobe Reader to display the PDF file to the user are
    run in a very restricted manner inside a confined environment, the
    “sandbox.” Should Adobe Reader need to perform an action that is not
    permitted in the sandboxed environment, such as writing to the user’s
    temporary folder or launching an attachment inside a PDF file using an
    external application (e.g. Microsoft Word), those requests are funneled
    through a “broker process,” which has a strict set of policies for what is
    allowed and disallowed to prevent access to dangerous functionality.
