    I've recently encountered a unique problem. Whenever I click on a link
    within a text in order to access a pdf document, a blank Adobe window will
    open and the "hourglass" stays on for a minute or so, at which time an error
    message appears, stating that my browser has encounterd a problem and then
    it closes my browser.

    All other links will take me to where it's suppose to go but it will not
    pull up a pdf file.

    I hope I'm making sense so someone more knowledgable than I can help me,

    Remove adobe and reinstall it.

    I'm assuming we are talking about the browser being IE6 XP SP2

    R click the .pdf file link and use your 'save target as' and save the
    ..pdf file and then see if you can open it will whichever adobe you are
    talking about. That way you won't be trying to open a (possibly big)
    ..pdf inside a bloated adobe inside an old browser. You will be handling
    the .pdf direct to .pdf app. You could also try some other .pdf handler
    on it, like FoxIt.
