Here is the scenario...

When I try to open a PDF file from Internet Explorer after, it does not open. It looks like it downloaded the file but does not open. I tried repairing Adobe reader, Reset web settings, repaired IE and checked Add ins for adobe in IE also but still I could resolve the issue.

I have Adobe 7.0.5 and Adobe Acrobat distiller as well on Win XP machine

Any help would be appreciated......

What type of Internet connection are you using (i.e. dialup, dsl, cable)?

Opening a .pdf file with a dial-up connection can be problematic, especially if the file is large. I have the same problem myself at times for that very reason.
