I'm surprised to hear you're using Acrobat Reader, Jim.  I gave them a second, 
third, fourth, and fifth chance to make an app that didn't completely suck, and 
they failed every time.  Thanks to this list, I'm all about the Foxit Reader 
and I am NEVER looking back.

Subject: [windows2000] Link Pick: Deploying Adobe 9 for Windows

In a previous blog posting 
 I complained about Adobe Acrobat 9 not working in IE with Windows Vista with 
Mandatory profiles.  Well I have since figured out after lots of aggravation 
that your only choice so far is to uncheck and change the setting in Adobe 
Acrobat Internet preferences  to turn off opening the PDF in the browser. .  

In researching this issue I came across an AWESOME step by step for installing 
Adobe written bay Aaron Parker, that includes an MST of the recommended 
settings. All I can say is Aaron, you da man!
