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.

also check here for this patch (mentioned for version 10.1.2)
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.
