    Windows 7 and IE9 with latest adobe reader installed. Started about a week ago so I am thinking maybe some MS updates messed up something? I can go to a page that has a PDF to download, right click and save the PDF to the desktop and open it fine but if someone posts a direct link to the PDF like here IE starts to load the page and says IE has stopped working and needs to close. So far I have tried going into adobe and unchecking the setting for opening PDF's in the browser and rechecking it and no luck. Some other suggestions on how to correct this welcome. Mary

    Never mind. After playing around all day forgot about the reset button in IE and that did the trick. I knew as soon as I posted I would find the fix. Mary
