Adobe PDF File wont open in IE

  OK Computer 16:13 14 Jul 2004

I was wondering if anyone could help. There is a website that I use which has a link to a Adobe PDF file.

When I right click the file, and choose Save As Target, I can download the file and view it from there on. However I used to be able to simply follow the link and have the pdf document open via Adobe Acrobat Reader in Internet Explorer.

However recently, the IE window simply goes blank with no activity at all, and nothing opens. I have tried re-installing IE (even upgrading to IE6) and tried upgrading to Adobe Acrobat 6 but had no joy. Does anyone have any ideas??????

Thanks in advance

I think it's an option in Acrobat, Edit, Preferences, Options.

It seems like Adobe Reader has gotten corrupted because you say that you used to be able to do it but now you can't. But I may be wrong.

If the suggestions so far don't work you may have to uninstall & reinstall the Reader. Most PC-mag cover discs have it, or d'load it from click here.

Sorry, to make myself clear...instead of the upgrade have you tried an uninstall & fresh reinstall of the Reader?

I will try re-installing Adobe again but to be honest Adobe 6 wasnt an upgrade, it was a fresh installation and I had to uninstall adobe 5 afterwards....I will let you know how I get on
