I get a black screen when I open a PDF attachement from an email.

I get a black screen when I open a PDF attachement from an email.

On my laptop, when opening a PDF attachment in a Comcast email, all I get is a black screen.  On my cell I am able to open this file.  Why not on my laptop?

Does your laptop have either Adobe Reader or Foxit a Reader to open the PDF  file?

Do you have a default program associated with opening PDFs on your laptop?
