I'm looking for an control to put on a ms access 2007 or 2010 form that will allow display, simple manipulation (such as rotation), annotation (like the stamp feature in acrobat) and creation of notes of a pdf file.  I can use the web browser control for viewing but it does not provide any additional capability.  I used to use the adobe acrobat control but my understanding is that it has not been available for several versions.  

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive option?

I found a great control in the GDPicture.Net suite.  It has great access examples but the cost would be around $2K+.  Most of the other major image players seem to be right around that same cost which completely busts my budget, especially considering that I'll only be using a very limited set of its functions.

I've found a couple of very inexpensive controls but each so far has gotten tagged by my virus software to being dangerous files.  Doing a little research on the internet seems to confirm that they should be handled with great care which really makes me nervous to install them.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks
