I have Adobe Acrobat V7.x installed on Windows XP / IE7PC.  Used to have the Typewriter toolbar on IE so that I could edit PDFS from within IE, that toolbar has disappeard somehow and cant get it back.  It is still there if I open up Adobe dirctly, but can't get it inside IE.  Any ideas short of removing and reinstalling the SW?

have you tried checking the toolbar from IE>View>Toolbars?
if its not listed there or checked already, may be the BHO for it was disabled somehow

for IE7, you can goto Tools>Manage Add-Ons>Enable or Disable Add-Ons and then make sure that BHOs for Adobe is enabled
for IE6, goto Tools>Internet Options>Advanced and check Enable Third-Party Browser Extensions and Apply

Yes tried the View/Toolbars & Mange Add ons.  The Adobe toolbar is there, but no typewriter option; it's not even grayed out.  It comes up fine if I open up Adobe directly, just not inside IE anymore.

then im afraid you have to reinstall the application
some required dll for the toolbar must have been removed or being corrupted
