I have acrobat viewer 5.1 on my computer and normally it works fine but recently when i click on a .pdf link it just displays an window with an empty image box (the little circle, triangle and square thingy!) and won't let me see it unless i save the document and open it with acrobat.....which is really annoying.

I can't work out what i have to do so that it just opens it Internet Explorer. (I'm using Windows XP)

Thank you in advance for any help!

Try using Mozilla Firefox as your browser.
Not Internet Explorer.

star - go to https://www.adobe.co.uk

and download the latest version of acrobat, and remove the old one, and install a new one, and then see if that soves it.....
