This might be do to an addon issue.  Navigate to tools>Manage Addons and see if any of the adobe readers helpers, etc.  are disabled.

tools --> options --> advanced make sure that you are allowing third party browser extensions.  
Also you can reset your browser internet settings and see if that helps you.

On a problem machine, try an alternate browser such as Mozilla Firefox.  If it works, this will definitively isolate IE7 as the focal point.

It is seems to be a permissions issue, probably ActiveX related.  Verify that you can run them (enabled) in the internet options for these users.

You can also try changing Adobe readers preferences by disabling the "Display PDF in browser" option.   Workaround for older PDFs that might have issues in IE7.

Are the stations on XP SP3?  And, did you try an alternate browser (firefox)?

On one stating that is not working, uninstall Adobe Reader and reinstall it - test and post back your results.

Additionally, do the uninstall/reinstall using the user account that is having the problem.  Also, since you tried to uncheck display in browser, recheck it. Maybe it will flag it to work.
