When I click on a link with a pdf file I get a black screen. I've downloaded the latest version of Adobe Reader. I think I started to have this problem when I got changed to Outlook. What's happening and how do I fix it?
Have you tried running a repair on Adobe Reader?
Is this a link to a local, online, or networked PDF?
Since you mention Outlook, I assume you are on Windows (what version?). Can you check if a newer device driver for your display adapter is available; see http://forums.adobe.com/thread/945765
I use Firefox. Tried to figure out how to do the screenshot. In that process I couldn't copy it so saved the black screen to a file. It saved as a pdf. When I went to copy it there was the document.
Can you view this document http://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/adobe_reader_reference.pdf ?
Does it have the Adobe Reader Toolbar on top, like this?
