PDf documents have stopped opening in Internet Explorer 6

    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.

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  ;)

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.
