I work in IT. 99 times out of a hundred in this situation the problem is the Acrobat plug-in to the browser, whether that is IE, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, etc. Sometimes it's corrupted by a subsequent patch (either to the browser or the app) or a conflicting app (goofball downloads that conflict with file settings or the plug-in itself) or it can also be a new digital camera or scanner that was installed with a version of Adobe photoshop "lite", elements, etc. that messes up the plug-in or a shared dll, etc.
Agreed, and the easiest, fastest work-around is to use another browser. I had that very problem with IE a couple years back on an old PC. I never was able to cure it, but being none too fond of IE anyways, was perfectly content to throw it under a bus, and switch to another browser. Problem solved!
