    Do I need Adobe Reader if I just downloaded Adobe Acrobat Pro 9.0?

      Hi! I just downloaded Acrobat Pro 9.0 and when I try to open a .pdf file in a website, I get the following message, "The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running cannot be used to view PDF files in a web browser.  Adobe Acrobat/Reader version 8 or 9 is required.  Please exit and try again."  When I click "okay", I get the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" page.

       

      I do have Adobe Reader version 8.1.2 installed on my machine.  Does Acrobat Pro have a built-in reader and should I just un-install it?

       

      Thanks a bunch!
