    Is this a joke.

    All I get is a supposed pdf file which opens my Windows media program and can only be stopped with the task manager process.

    This is completely legit, it must be something wrong with your computer. (By the way, did you open it with the correct program?)

    Just downloaded it, don't have time to read it though

    Thanks for the share

    Frank, I guess your download has got terminated at some point before completion, and you might be opening the temporary file. Just have one more try.

    Yes,I agree it is a genuine offer.

    The problem was that when I double clicked it, it opened up with Windows Media Player. Choosing "Open with" worked OK.

    Perhaps it is something to do with my 64 bit version of Vista,

    Edit: I have just tried it again. It will always pick the media player if just clicked. I need to right-click and select Open with. I have downloaded it three times and it is always the same. I have reset the default and it is now OK.
