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.

When you go to click on the PDF link, right click and select "Open in new tab" or "Open in new window"
Is that what you're looking for or are you getting at something else?  If it's in IE you can just make sure the Address Toolbar is active and it should show you what the URL is.
You have to change the behavior in acrobat reader how to open in IE.

Right-click and enable the Address toolbar?

This option doesnt exist when opening pdfs in internet explorer 8.
This has to be accomplished via GPO

No that is not it, we do not have any GPOs applied in this case, this is a setting within either adobe read or IE.  In vista and windows 7 it does it, so we can select the url and bring up the pdf directly.
Is it the same version of Adobe Reader?

Yes they both are adobe 9, my verison of IE 8, and it works, the other computer is adobe 9 and IE7 and it works, but in the new machine its adobe 9 and IE 8 and it doesnt, all systems are XP service pack 3
Try re-installing Adobe Reader 9.

Then make sure the Add-In Manager for IE8 is enabling all Adobe entries.
