I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A workaround is to start Adobe Reader before browsing to the pdf-file
Once it has been started everything works just fine.

But it's just a temp solution, I'll keep looking.

I checked a few things and the problem was that Adobe would only work for non-administrators if "Display PDF in browser" is checked off in Adobe Reader Preferences.  It will work either way for the admin account.  If this option is changed from m the admin account it changes the option for all users on the system - I guess that's what happened.  Adobe tech support site indicates this to be the resolution as well.
