Do you have the latest Acrobat Reader?

In Internet Explorer, click Tools then "manage add-ons". I have the full Adobe Acrobat, and I have three BHOs enabled. I'll have to boot my kids' computer to see what the reader only has, but check to see if your Acrobat BHO(s) are enabled.

Do you run any ad blocking software? Are other download docs opening correctly?

Please go to this site (I own it, and it's safe and family friendly)

and see how the doc and pdf files behave for you. Maybe I can tell something on my end??
