PDf documents have stopped opening in Internet Explorer 6

Hello,
    When I attempt to open a PDF document directly in the browser I get a blank screen.  I can save the doc and open off the desktop with Reader 6 but it just won't open within Internet Explorer 6 - why, and how can I fix this?  i tried re-installing Adobe reader 6 and it didn't help.

Cheers

DB

Hi,

If you have office 2003 installed, install the acrobat updates (if you haven't done so). Office 2k3 has some incompatabilities with it, and you need to update in order to fix that.

Acrobat Reader 6.0.2: htp://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=10&platform=Windows

I hope this helps  ;)

Hello fsbsupport =)

Check here,

Adobe Acrobat .pdf Files Appear as a Blank Window or Frame
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;177321

Also,

Configure Internet Explorer or AOL to display PDF files (Acrobat 5.0-6.0 and Adobe Reader 5.0-6.0 on Windows)

Reason is it will take a while for IE to load the pdf file if it is big.  If you can download it and read why need to open from IE?  Reading from IE is slower than reading offline coz it need to load page by page.

AcroIEHelper.dll --- Browser Helper Object -- Acrobat plugin for IE to read .pdf files.
If you delete this registry then it won't work for IE. The plugin and registry is different for a different browser.

Checkout if you have enabled third party browser extensions in the IE Advanced Browser settings.
