    If you open a page with a PDF do the Adobe Tools come up?  Here is a page to test:

    I dont think there is a 64 bit compatible version. Only for IE 32bit, ehich you have on 32bit Win7....

    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.
