Hello,

if not already can you try to add the site to the trusted sites and try again? If doesn't work i would reinstall adobe acrobat reader.

Do you need a proxy to access the internet? If you do, is it possible for you to connect your pc on another network just for install purposes (removing the proxy)?

Hi,

please try the possible solutions:

- enable compatibility view settings for the site
- check internet options on the trusted sites security and lower the security / enable stuff. do this also on the internet sites, just for testing purposes.
- disable protected mode.
- create a new clean windows profile and try to open the pdf site again

everybody can access that site without issues?
