Free Acrobat Reader software allows you to view, navigate, and print PDF (Portable Document Format) files across all major computing platforms.

Acrobat Reader works as a plug-in with either Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer. You may download a free copy of Acrobat Reader from Adobe Systems. Follow the installation instructions provided.
