Internet Explorer 11 Windows 7 PDF files will not open What to do???

Internet Explorer 11 the looks are great.  But in ie 11 I cannot view or download any files in adobe reader.  I have tried multiple suggests from this site.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have viewed adobe reader preferences.  I have reviewed tools options ie 11. I have installed foxit, to no avail.  I have been forced to use google or foxfire I have no problems with opening and down loading pdf files.   My preference is to internet explorer.

I have not had this problem until Internet Explorer was down loaded automatically to my pc in January 2014

Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue? Thanks for any help


OK, me again. I found something that seems to work. I opened Adobe Reader XI, clicked Edit and Settings. Then, to the left I selected Internet, and then I unchecked the box "Display in read mode by default". Then I restarted my computer and now it works.

I really like read mode, so I'll try to use it again later...
