For some reason my internet explorer 9 has stopped opening my online pdf documents. The a blank Windosw 7 windows opens with Adobe in the top right corner with nothing in it.
I have:
1.) checked all IE add ons and none of the adobe add ons are disabled
2.) I download a pdf I cantopen in IE to my desktop & I can open and read it
3.) I check the event viewer but nothing has posted.

Try doing a "Repair" of Adobe Reader:

Control Panel
Programs and Features
Select the Adobe Reader item
There will be a "Change" link at the top - click it
Choices will be Repair or Remove
Select Repair and follow the prompts

This should fix whatever got hosed in IE. Regards, Joe

And if you're using Adobe Acrobat rather than Adobe Reader, you may do the repair in Acrobat. I'm using Acrobat X Standard and on the Help menu is an item that says "Repair Acrobat Installation". This fixed things the last time my IE9 stopped showing PDFs. Regards, Joe
