IE 8 and Adobe Reader 9.3.2

    I am stumped!

    I am using Win XP Prof, IE 8, and Adobe Reader 9.3.2.

    When I attempt to 'open' a PDF file, a new window opens but the window
    crashes. Fortunately, I can press Ctrl-Alt-Del and close the 'crashed' window
    without having to reboot or close other programs that are open.

    If I go into Adobe's 'Edit, Preferences, Internet' settings and uncheck
    'Display PDF in browser,' the PDF window opens fine without any issues.

    Why am I having this issue in the first place, why does unchecking the box
    open 'several' new windows instead of 'pasting' over the existing window, are
    these files being 'saved' somewhere because it says that it is downloading to
    the 'Temp' folder, and why are the files named 'fileoutput(1).pdf,'
    'fileoutput(2).pdf, and so on?

    [Crosspost to IE General]

    Are you running WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

    => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No add-ons).

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?

    3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed IE8?

    4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
    machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    1. The webpage does not open if I start IE in no add-ons mode-By the way, if
    I close that IE window, when I open IE again, does it automatically go back
    to 'add-ons' mode?

    2. Problem exists even after resetting IE advance settings

    3. AVG Free Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware vers 9.0.819 and Windows firewall-No
    apps running when IE 8 installed.

    No Norton/McAfree ever on this computer.

    You might check the Adobe forums for a solution for someone else having a
    similar problem.

    A viable alternative to Adobe Reader is PDF-XChange Viewer
    http://www.docu-track.com/product/downloads. It's free for home use, does
    everything and more that Reader does, takes up fewer resources, and is
    faster to load. I've used it for quite some time now and am very satisfied
    with it. I am yet to have it lock up or cause problems in IE7 or IE8. And
    you can beat the price :)

    Does PDF-XChange Viewer have a built-in feature to 'bundle'several PDF files
    into one file (unlike Adobe Reader) or willI still need separate spftware for
    that?

    According to the Help file, the Pro version (retail) allows dragging pages
    from one PDF to another, then saving it, so I guess it could be done like
    that. I didn't delve too deeply to see if there is any kind of page or size
    limitation.
    I don't know if Fox-it has that ability or not. I've used it, but liked
    PDF-XChange viewer better. I don't remember exactly what they were, but
    Fox-it had some quirks that I found irksome, so I uninstalled it.
