when I install adobe reader, I think the add-on for IE makes it so that when a pdf file is embedded in a website, reader opens the pdf document in IE.
I would like to make it so that if there is a pdf file, instead of opening the file, you are given the choice to save the file.
I looked in manage add-ons in the internet options control panel, and I disabled
Adobe PDF Link Helper
but IE still tried to open the pdf file.
is there some other way to keep IE from automatically loading the pdf?

If it's just a link on a web page right click and save as.

Open the Adobe Reader standalone program.
Go to Edit->Preferences
On the left, select Internet
On the right, uncheck Allow fast web view.
