The only thing that I can think of

Is that when you installed Adobe 7 did you allow it to plug into IE?

This is something that I haven't seen previously but by the same token I haven't used Y2K much either. Most of my clients went from 98SE to XP or NT4 to XP and skipped Y2K as a desktop application.

If you have IE6 installed Adobe Reader should just integrate into it as a Plug In.

The other thing is what level do you have your IE Security Settings Set to it's also possible that they are set too high and are not allowing Plug Ins to activate or download.

Most likely that

What browser are you using, we assume IE? It should plug into IE all by itself.

What are you trying to access, just any old PDF, or a one from a particular site? Can you open a PDF if not on a web page, or from another web page.

It may also be a cookie problem, as I had this happen to me when trying the darn TR PDF downloads. It wasn't until I got a hint from elsewhere and specifically added to my allowed site list that I could open a PDF instead of downloading it first.

Like Col said it could be your security settings, permissions for cookies come under that heading, I suppose.

If it is not opening

by w2ktechman In reply to unable to open .pdf file ...

from IE but it is with a downloaded document, you may need to make a small change.
Open Acrobat reader
go to Edit menu
go to Preferences
in the preferences list go to "Internet"
there should be a checkmark in 'Display in a browser', if not add it and press the OK button.
If the checkmark was there, uncheck it and press OK. then close Acrobat. Re-open Acrobat and place the checkmark in it and press OK

displaying .pdf files in browser window

by carole-y In reply to unable to open .pdf file ...

To eliminate the browser from the issue, right-click on the link to the .pdf and select "Save As". Save the .pdf file somewhere locally and then open it using Acrobat reader.

I have seen some issues with viewing .pdf files in IE, and this should be a quick workaround for that.
