This is a user to user forum. Your attitude and lack of details about
your system and version of Reader is unlikely to get you any substantive
There is a very easy solution to that, and it has been published several times in this forum.
However, YELLING at your fellow users does not prompt us to go out of our way to help you.
I too am a power user who is affected in a similar way. Fresh installs of Adobe Reader 9.0 on several networks of XP / Vista machines with all patches and IE7 have the problem.
All the workarounds on this forum have not worked for me. While many users have posted "fixes", I think it is abundantly clear to any reader of posts from other users that problems remain. The only thing left is to "open windows outside IE7", a real kludge.
To the best of my knowledge, Adobe has not come up with any official tech note characterising this problem, let alone a fix.
I fully understand that this is a user-to-user forum. But insofar as some Adobe guys do view the posts, and negative publicity generated from a rant could incentivise a fix to this new behavior introduced in a "new, improved" version, I fully support the original poster.
Adobe 9 does offer some improvements, but the bug/bugs is/are an awful mess.
The best place to post to get it fixed is:
The more people that post they have an issue and include details, the
more likely it will get fixed. Adobe collects statistics can info from
the above link.
See if the following makes any difference... Try turning off updates: Edit > Prefences > General > Application Startup: Check for updates.
