Internet Explorer 8 wont open pdf Files

  Nogin the Nog 16:52 17 Jan 2010

I have just installed Windows 7 (64 bit)on my PC. I have Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional and Internet Explorer 8 software.

When I view a web page with a link to a pdf file (such as this one click here) Internot Explorer reports that it cannot display the web page. If I run Internet Explorer as Administrator then everything works fine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Acrobat twice but to no avail.

Is there a quick fix for this problem?

Don't know but you could try installing Foxit Reader and see if that works click here

You need Adobe Reader to view a PDF file - not Acrobat

click here

but Foxit Reader will do just as well - if not better.
