Webpages (some not all) won't display

    I am using IE8 on a new laptop with Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I am having a
    problem with some webpages not displaying (whether I click on them or open in
    a new tab). I think this is related, in part, to a pdf problem, but I'm not
    sure. MOST of the pages I am trying to open are pdf, but not all of them.
    I'll explain how I came to this conclusion: I tried in install Adobe Acrobat
    7 on my new maching (Dell Inspiron) and I couldn't install the whole program
    because there was no upgrade for Win 7. So then I downloaded something
    called PDF995. I actually paid for it, but it wasn't much (much less than
    Adobe Acrobat). Then I uninstalled Adobe Acrobat 7. For whatever reason
    now, I am having the above problem. In particular, I can't open my
    iStatements on my online banking anymore. Nor can I open any links on a site
    called NephCure.org under Research (articles) or this page:
    http://www.navpress.com/uploadedFiles/15074 BRP.dj.pdf. I think all these
    are pdfs. But there are some that I don't think are pdf. And I have been
    able to open SOME pdf links, so it's not consistent. Any ideas???? Anyway,
    in case this helps, when I print one of the webpages with the error message,
    here's what prints on the bottom of the page:
    res://ieframe.dll.dnserror.htm, in case that helps. I am able to make pdf
    files and open ones that I made, so that's not a problem. This is really
    hindering so I hope you can help. Thank you so much!

    Click Start>Programs, and scroll down the list to Internet Explorer. Notice
    there are two entires, Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer (64-bit).

    The problem is, the icon on your desktop (and the default IE) is the 64-bit
    version, but there are still lots of Websites that do not support the 64-bit
    browser.

    You might find that the desktop icons have an IE and IE(64).

    Adobe Flash does not support the 64-bit operation, so any page with Flash
    must be opened with the 32-bit version of IE.

    Does the behavior persist if you access these pages using IE8 32-bit?

    PS: Why didn't you just download/install Adobe Reader v9.2 (free)?
