Browser Plugin Options

I have a Win 7 64 bit computer using IE9. How can I make the Adobe browser plugins visible on the browser? If I right click the menu bar the Adobe PDF" option is not available even though the plugins are enabled......please advise. Thanks

If you open a page with a PDF do the Adobe Tools come up?  Here is a page to test: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4.pdf

wantabe--I do not show anything about Adobe PDF on the MenuBar of IE9.  I have Adobe Reader (not Acrobat) and Adobe PDF Link Helper (BHO) and Adobe PDF Reader (ActiveX) add-ons installed.  I see the latter two from IE Tools|Manage Add-ons.
Have you seen these add-ons in the menu bar before?  
Are you having any problems because of this?

I ended up installing a 3rd part app called CutePDF. This totally fixed my issue. The heck with Adobe! I just won't use it on a 64 bit machine any more. Thanks for all your comments.
