I have Windows XP SP2 Tablet Edition 2005, also Zone Labs Suite (firewall and
AV) and CounterSpy. I use Adobe Reader 7. I recently installed Adobe
Elements 3.0

I have tried searching for a solution on this site, but need more details.

Lately I cannot open PDF files on an IE page, or soemtimes even an Outlook
attachment in PDF - I get cannot dispay or similar message. The only way to
get round this is to right-click the file or attachment, then Save Target As
and put the file into another folder. I then go into Windows Explore to the
target folder and open the PDF file with Reader 7, no problem

Another post said dowload the IE plugin for Reader, but I cannot find this
on the Adobe sites. One other post recommended never opening PDF files in IE
or Outlook ever!

Anyone have the URL for the Reader IE Plug In?

Thanks,

Kibo Kid

In Adobe go to Edit...Preferences and select Internet on the left. Uncheck
Display PDF in browser.
