    I am having a problem opening Adobe reader documents in a IE page. If I download the Adobe document or turn off the Adobe reader perference to not open in a web page the documents open fine. Sometimes the doc will open the first time but if I try to open it again it hangs IE. I am not having a problem opening the documents in Firefox.

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe reader.

    I forgot to mention I work in a school and this is failing on all the computers in the school and on my computers at home as well.

    I made that preference change back during the IE6 era, and still open PDFs in the Reader. So I can't help with the IE8 aspect of the question, but can confirm that the workaround is quite effective.

    Are you using the most current version of Adobe Reader (i.e. 9.3.1)?
