Internet Explorer and Adobe Reader on Win ME

IE 6.0 no longer launches Adobe Reader 5.1 when a .PDF file is selected. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Uninstall 5.1 and get the latest version instead would be my first thought but if you are on a dialup you probably don't want to do that tho 7.0 is quite nice and allows you to copy text from pdf files to your clipboard.

If you find a .pdf file with Windows Explorer (Right click on Start and select Explore) does it open?

If you don't want to re-install acrobat reader, try saving the pdf to disk first and then double clicking it.

This has worked in the past for me
