If you have a dial-up connection, this may mean long download times. It might be more efficient to SAVE the file & open it later, rather than open it directly. It also might be more efficient to go to the ATLC (library basement), & use their direct connections. I've tested all files using both Internet Explorer & Mozilla Firefox browsers, & all work well.
