Adobe Reader 9 and Acrobat 9 problems with Internet Explorer

I use Reader 9.3.1. here at work and Acrobat 9.3 at home.  When I’m at home, I can’t open or view PDF files without Acrobat crashing.

When I’m here at work, I can open up a PDF within Internet Explorer but when I close the tab, it crashes the IE instance of that tab.  I have found a workaround and that is to run Internet Explorer as administrator but this opens you up to problems especially with all the drive-by malware going around these days.  Ideally you should not have to run your browser in administrator mode just to read a PDF file without it crashing your browser.

I’m disappointed in Adobe.  Yes I know I can use Foxit Reader or whatever other alternative there is but I do not want to do that.  I do not want to use any other program except for Adobe Reader or Acrobat.  I can’t find anything for the life of me on any other website.  The info is very sparse and limited.  If you’re having problems with Adobe Reader 9 as well as Acrobat 9 with Windows 7 64-bit, please leave me a message or contact me at ryan [remove] [at] random[remove]fix [dot] com.

Sorry for such a pain process of emailing me but it’s due to spammers.
