Can't view PDF's in IE6

The last couple of weeks, every time I try to go to any URL that is actually a PDF document (URL ends in .pdf), I get "cannot find server", "the page cannot be displayed", etc. Note that if I try to use IE to look at PDF files stored on my hard drive, I get "access to the specified device, path, or file is denied". If I use IE to look at a html file in the same folder, it works. If I use Windows Explorer to list the PDF file, then double click on it, it opens up correctly using Adobe Acrobat.

I thought I saw something like this in the malware removal forum recently, but it won't let me do a search on "PDF" because it is less than four characters. Any suggestions?

uninstall the acrobat reader (or adobe reader as it's now called) through 'Add/Remove Programs' then download/install latest version from here:
