Stop Adobe reader opening PDF in browser — 3 Comments

  1. Help! I have tried to follow the instructions in this article without success. I use Internet Explorer 9 with Windows Vista. I believe that is the highest version of Internet Explorer Windows Vista works with. When I went in to ‘Manage Add-ons’, I couldn’t find ‘all add-ons’, in the list. Under ‘toolbars and extentions’, I found ‘Adobi PDF Reader Link Helper’, which I assumed would be the one. It’s already disabled on my computer, and yet documents are still opening in the brouzer. This was even true when I then opened ‘Internet Explorer No Add-ons’ from the Start Menue. Is my PC at risk, and if so what should I do?

      1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.

      2.Click the Tools button Tools button, and then click Manage add-ons.

      3.Under Add-on Types, click Toolbars and Extensions.

      •To display add-ons that were preapproved by Microsoft, your computer manufacturer, or a service provider, click Run without permission.

      5.When you’re finished, click Close.
