I just upgraded a user to Office 2010 and now when he receives a pdf attachment via email, he is unable to print it.  I've uninstalled Adobe Reader and reinstalled it (version 11.0.06) hoping that would make a difference but still nothing happens.  It's as if he never hit the print button.  All Office updates have run on the laptop.  Windows 7 64bit .  Not sure what else to troubleshoot.

Please see the following article for a possible solution:

Barring that, you may need to instruct your user to download the attachment & open it in Acrobat Reader to print it from there.

Reader 10.1.2 crashes, hangs, or nothing happens, when you try to print.

I copied a pdf over to the desktop and tried to print from there but still unable to print.  This must be an issue with Adobe.  I uninstalled Adobe Reader and reinstalled it from the site but still not able to print.
