PDF Files won't open in Internet Explorer 7

I am trying to open PDF document in IE7

We use a website all the time which launches a form in a PDF document. This no longer works but displays a "done" message in IE.

I have edited the security settings (download unsigned active X) without success

I tested another website where I knew PDF documents existed and the PDF docs did download but displayed an error stating that some add-ons were disabled and may effect the way PDF docs are viewed - could this be the problem?

I have been into the "Manage add-ons in IE" and all the adobe ones are enabled.

Please help!

have you downloaded the last pdf view from Adobe's website and installed that?

There is a option in "Preferences" -> Internet -> Display PDF in Browser. If you check this option this will solve the issue. If it does not, uncheck it, close acrobat -> start it and check the box again. If this does not work you have to reinstall, these are the only solutions for this problem.

Alright, set the default web browser to be Internet Explorer.
XP: Start -> set program access and defaults -> customer -> set the default browser to be IE.
Vista: Start -> Default Programs -> Set your default programs -> set the default browser to be IE.

I believe the problems all related to the fact we found the PC was full of malware.
We did a clean install of Windows and the PDF is now working!

Thanks to everyone for their efforts!
