Can't open PDF because Internet will close

Whenever I try to open a PDF file, it appears that the page is starting to load and then the browser closes. Before, when it was working, whenever I clicked on the link to get my notes for school, the PDF document would open up within the browser and I would download it to file. But now I have to do it from school and e-mail it to myself. I noticed this just about a week ago and haven't been able to figure anything out. My anti-virus hasn't said anything, I've ran Ad-Aware with nothing being found and I've attempted to turn off the pop-up blocker through Internet Options but still not sure if I've done it properly. Also, the site I use to get my notes runs off of Java. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Problem pretty much fixed. I had Adobe Reader 7.0 and I downloaded 8.0 and it kind of works. I have to open Adobe with no file and then I can click on the little link that opens the PDF file. If I don't it says that I have to exit Adobe and try again. Is there any way that I can have Adobe running or something so that I don't have to open it everytime I want to view a PDF online?

Why not try Foxit Reader. A lot of peeps think it better than Adobe. I use it and it is fast and small.
