What are AR's Preferences? Hint: press Ctrl-k
Try unchecking Display PDF in browser
and see if your symptom changes?
BTW did you also get a recent update for IE?
Perhaps you should "reinstall" AR after that too? ; )
Tip: instead of reinstalling it just use its Repair
procedure, e.g. via appwiz.cpl (aka ARP or whatever
Vista and W7 are now calling it.)
