Can't Open attachments in OWA windows 7 and IE 8

When I try to download a .pdf from owa I'm getting the message:
Unable to download attachment.ashx from xxxx.xxx.com  Unable to open internet site.  The requested site is either unavailable or can't be found... Please try again later.  I tried looking at the permissions in application data, temp/low but that had no effect.  I don't think this is an exchange error because it's only happening on 1 or 2 machines.

does it work if adobe reader is already opened?  also try going into adobe reader and unchecking the open in protected mode option.
1.Open up Adobe Reader X
2.On the Toolbar Menu go to Edit > Preferences
3.Go to the general tab under Categories.
4.Untick “Enable Protected Mode at Startup”
5.If asked if sure, click Yes and then Ok.
6.Now close Adobe Reader X and try opening the PDF again.
