We are running Windows Server 2003.  My secretary is having a problem opening PDFs. From a webpage, they START to load, but "hang up" just short of opening.  Once that happens, NONE of the PDFs will open.  No changes have been made that would seem to have caused this.

1.Restart the machine and try again.
2.If it happens again goto task manager and kill if you have multiple sessions of acrobat.
3. Do you have problem only with wep page pdf's or also the local one ?
4.Run windows updates and install all patches

DId restart both the local machine and the Server.  On restart, PDFs will open at first, locally.  But after trying to open a PDF on a website we use that hangs up when opening, then NO PDFs will open.

Other users on same network are not having the same problem. We are also using ThinClients.

Please run the windows updates on the local machine...
I am assuming you use IE
