Solved: Adobe PDF Won't Load in Internet Explorer
PDF Files won't load in Internet Explorer right away. It gets stuck on like loading 24kb/50 or whatever.

If you hit refresh, then it loads instantly.

This is IE Version 8.0.. I restored settings in IE to default. I uninstalled Adobe and reinstalled it.. I've restarted multiple times. I've ran a virus scan which found nothing.

Played with some Adobe settings... Any other ideas?

You could consider a much lighter alternative like Foxit Reader. When installing, uncheck the foistware (Ask toolbar) boxes.

I don't want to go down that road, it's for a client.

Try opening a PDF file after disabling all the add-ons in Internet Explorer, except for Adobe of course. If it helps, re-enable the add-ons one by one until you find the culprit.

Is it Adobe Pro 8 or Adobe Reader 8? if it's Pro 8, configure IE to load using Adobe Reader

It was Adobe 10.1.2

Turns out problem occured when you use Adobe Reader 10.1.2 to read non Adobe generated pdfs from the web over an SSL connection.

If you downgrade back to 10.1.1 it works fine.. but that also creates security issues if you do that.
