I have the latest Adobe PDF reader installed on a window 10 64 bit machine.  I am forced to still use IE  11 for many reasons  What's happening when I try to open a PDF It tries to open but I get the following error: The is a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader.  If it is running, please exit and try again (0:521). I have a few users with this issue and other than refreshing the page I can't think of anything that would fix this issue.  It's enabled in the add on in IE.  We tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that doesn't work either.

Are you using Adobe Acrobat on these machines as well? If yes then go to Edit - Adobe Preferences -Internet and there disable PDF in Browser option.
