Trying to open a .PDF file from internet, and got this:
"Could not launch Acrobat" Clicked "OK" then got "Could not load the plug-in 'Adobe Acrobat' for the MIME-TYPE 'application/pdf'. Make sure enough memory is available and that the plug-in is installed correctly".

I am no expert at browsers, but checked for Plug-ins under Help and saw that the Acrobat-plugin is installed.

Help me.

Reinstall acrobat, and possibly your web browser.
You may want to try and save the acrobat files to disk, and see if you can open it from there.
