    ie8 and reader


      have ie8 i could not use reader, one of the fellows at adobe said to cream all adobe products and then re-install(dont worry will be posting this also in reader forum)m biqw U have ie closed, download the stand alone app, and yet I cannot use reader from ie8. When I follow the instructions for reader, it shows that the version for the reader, does not show, under the add-in manager, and when I try to open a pdf on the web it refuses to show. If I save it then I can read it just fine. I have seen articles which I have been seeing for a while, saying there was a installer error for adobe, however still will not install and actually work  So now I do not know what to do to get it all working again. Kind of frustration when adobe says do this, then cannot get a clear answer without spending 39 dollars to fix flash player, and 39 to fix reader. I am disabled and unable to spend 80 dollars just so I can view PDF's for my disability insurance stuff. Adobe used to make a very seamless product but I am very surprised at how poor the information as to fixing the problem. Help me please

          I can try to help you here but I need some more info from you:

          1.Which OS you are using?

          2.What is the version of Adobe Reader you are having on your system?

          3.What exact error message or anything else you see when you try to open your pdf in ie8.A screenshot here would be really helpful.
