    Restart your computer. If that does not work, try this:

    1. Launch Reader

    2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Security (Enhanced) > uncheck "Enable Protected Mode at startup"

    3. Click on "OK" button

    4. Exit Reader

    5. Launch IE and open the PDF file
    -----
    You might get rid of your google toolbar also, it causes many problems when opening something from another program. Control Panel >> Programs and Features > Highlight it and click 'Remove'

    That worked. Thanks
