Pdf Viewer refreshes during page index change of gridview on asp.net page

I have a gridview on an asp.net page with two link buttons - one for viewing a pdf and one for downloading.   When  you click View a pdf viewer is displayed in a literal control.  This works fine.  But I have paging enabled for my gridview and when I click the paging links the pdf display refreshes, meaning it will reload the last pdf viewed.  I'm guessing it has something to do with postback but can't figure out a solution.
<div id="wpaLinks" style="height: 118px;">
                <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel2" runat="server">                         
                    <ContentTemplate>
                        <asp:GridView ID="gvWPAs" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" AllowPaging="true" PageSize="3" CssClass="Grid" AlternatingRowStyle-CssClass="alt"

                gvWPAs.DataSource = dvTRWpa;

They don't work if I do that, so is that how you mean?

I set the UpdateMode to Conditional on UpdatePanel3
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel3" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional">                     
                <ContentTemplate>
                    <asp:Literal ID="ltEmbed" runat="server" />
                </ContentTemplate>
            </asp:UpdatePanel>

Open in new window

Then added UpdatePanel3.Update() to....
protected void View(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
string pdfIdentifier = (sender as LinkButton).CommandArgument;
string embed = "<object data=\"{0}{1}\" type=\"application/pdf\" width=\"650px\" height=\"850px\">";
embed += "If you are unable to view file, you can download from <a href = \"{0}{1}&download=1\">here</a>";
embed += " or download <a target = \"_blank\" href = \"http://get.adobe.com/reader/\">Adobe PDF Reader</a> to view the file.";
embed += "</object>";
ltEmbed.Text = string.Format(embed, ResolveUrl("~/PdfHandler.ashx?pdfPath="), "WpaFiles/" + pdfIdentifier);
UpdatePanel3.Update();
}
