What version of Internet Explorer?

I would simply reinstall Adobe Reader.

The Adobe Reader Plugin is needed to open PDFs in you browser.  No browser except Chrome opens them by itself.  Make sure you selected Open PDF in Browser like in the image below.  If that doesn't work, you may need to re-install Adobe Reader.
