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.

I'm unable to update, couldn't download because of proxy I think. Now, I can't even download an view the pdf.
Pedro GamaCitrix AdminCommented:
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)?
shydocAuthor Commented:
I do need a proxy, no other ways to get access to Internet since this is corporat environment.
Pedro GamaCitrix AdminCommented:
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?
