When trying to open a .pdf document in Internet Explorer I get an error telling me that I am  unable to open pdfs in IE stating that I need a tleast adobe reader 8/9 to open file. I have Adobe Reader 9 and all the .pdf files on my computer open with no problem at all. Please advise.

Thank you!

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.
