I have the same problem. Windows xp, new Adobe CS3 Web premium with Adobe Acrobat Pro 8.1.1 installed. all updates etc. From IE 7 the little Adobe menu choices do nothing.
Same problem applies to if I select TEXT on a web page and right mouse click to be able to convert the TEXT or links to PDF do nothing.
I have tried the repair install, and I also did a complete uninstall of Adobe Acrobat, and then re-installed... no help.
Hope someone has a solution... I have tried so many things, and still it just does not work.
Thanks ~ aj
had a whole raft of problems setting up Adobe Arcobat and it will not print and never will if you try using the Print option Adobe printer.
Problem solved!!!! Yahoooooooo, but need to do the following ......
This will allow the PDF Maker Icon to be dislayed on the Web browser IE 6 & 7.
If your having problems with all the other MS office applications then you will have to do the following
2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS
MS have obviously had a problem and the fix is available at the above link
Validation is required before you can download the file --------
Run the application.....
After that all MS Office 2007 applications have an extra tab added to the header called Acrobat with option
Create and Attach to Email
Create and Send for Review
I did try to install the file you suggested
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930627 but that didn't work So must be a combination of Windows XP 64bit and Office 2007
Well this has been a learning curve and may be of help to others.
copy the above link into a web page has the following information, so try one or all of the following. Its usually a config problem and the adobe support people were not very helpful in finding the answer, but hopefully the following will resolve the issue

2. Open Acrobat and choose Edit > Preferences.
3. Choose Internet from the list of categories on the left, and then click the Internet Settings button.

I am having this same problem. Running Windows XP, our helpdesk just installed IE7 last week, and that has seemed to break the PDF conversion Add-ons for IE. Running Acrobat Pro 8.1.3 and Dreamweaver CS3 9.0 Build 3481. Under IE6 the export worked perfectly, under IT7 no go. Any help with this would be appreciated!!!
I have Acrobat 9 Pro, IE 8 and Vista Home Premium (64 bit). Prior to recent MS updates, I had been able to convert web pages. After reading several of the fixes in this forum, I checked Tool bars, they were unlocked,. I then checked Ie's Internet Properties for third party extensions. It was not checked. I checked the box, closed IE, re-opened it and converted a webpage to PDF.
