.ashx driver missing?

Hi, when viewing sites that require the .ashx driver to view PDF-like documents, suddenly I'm getting dialogue boxes saying that IE8 doesn't recognise the file extension.

I'm running XP Home Edition version 5.1.2600 SP3 Build 2600 on an MSI Wind netbook and have IE8 version 8.0.6001.1702

I've Googled (sorry) the internet and searched the MS Answer site (all too technical for me) but can't find anything to help (except Pareto Driver Cure, which looks dodgy, keeps popping up. Think this is related)?

How do i fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Tony
