Recently, seemingly since installing Acrobat Reader 9, my browser crashes whenever I open a link to a PDF file. This occurs regardless of which browser is being used: IE, Firefox and Safari all experience the problem. I have uninstalled and re-installed the Acrobat Reader 9, with no improvement. I am running XP SP2.

Can anyone suggest a solution? Thanks.

Just for the record Foxit Reader is not a Mozilla product which is who happens to own Firefox. Foxit Reader is a product of Foxit Software Company.

Founded in 1996, Foxit Software Company was initially a network application company. Foxit has devised many popular products, such as: Koala Terminal, Secured Koala Terminal, and Windows Access Server.

Starting in 2000, Foxit Software has been focusing on the electronic publishing and documenting field. Implementation of PDF Core technology becomes the primary development task. Today, the Foxit PDF product line covers many types of PDF applications.
