Acrobat 8 std - Acrobat PDF toolbar missing in Windows Exlporer

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Until recently I used to have a toolbar within a Windows explorer window that enable me to convert a file to PDF without even needing to open the file. If I open a Widows explorer window, click 'View' from the main menu and navigate to the 'Toolbars' drop down I can see the Acrobat PDF entry but if a click on it to activate it nothing happens. If I return to the Toolbars menu the Acrobat PDF toolbar still remains but there is no tick alongside it. Has anyone got any suggestions as to how this can be resolved? I have attempted to re-install the program but doesn't make any difference. Many thanks John.
