I'm running Win XP, and have updated to IE 7 (having had all sorts of trouble with IE 6). I also updated to (I think) Adobe v7. It all seems to mostly work OK but when I run a search (on Google, haven't tried other search engines) and some of the links found are PDF files, if I ever try to open one of those links I get an error message which informs me that IE has to close. I get asked if I want to send an error report or not (I usually do). And all IE windows which I have open will then close.
I don't want to roll back to before I did these updates as they resolved other problems which I was having. I'd like to be able to fix this and stay where I am.
This is immensely frustrating, and it's stopping me working properly. Can anyone advise me how to resolve this problem?
Yes, in principle you should uninstall in reverse order to clean them both out, and then re-install the later version (7.0.8). There was a thread on one of the forums recently which gave the detailed procedure, I'll try to find the reference (unless someone else has it to hand).
There is an entry 'Detect and Repair' in the Help menu for v7 which is worth trying first - it's simple and quick - but I don't have a list of the corrections it can make. Shouldn't do any harm, though.
