    I've uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Reader in the latest version. Updated everything I could. Still, everytime I try to load a .pdf file from a site, all I get is a blank page.

    Anyone know what's going on?

    I tried using different browsers (Firefox and IE). Both have the same problem.

    If you download the file first, does it open correctly?
