IE 8 PDF view with Acrobat 9 standard installed


I have a XP Pro machine with Acrobat Standard installed running IE8.  I can view PDF documents via IE8 in all but one user account.  When I login to the primary user account it will not work and opens in Acrobat Standard rather than IE8.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Acrobat 9.  Within Acrobat preferences I have verified the settings are checked to display in the browser.  I have also tried un-checking the setting acrobat browser settings, restarted the machine, then checked the settings and restarted again.   That did not make a difference.

Thank you for your help.

Do you have "Adobe PDF Link helper" listed and enabled in your Add-ons for IE?
