Q: Enhanced Protected Mode (EPM) This thread is locked from future replies

I am running Windows 7 64 Bit with IE 9.  when i try to open an Adobe document I get an error that Adobe Acrobat does not support Internet Explorer's Enhanced Protected Mode (EPM).  Either install the latest version of Adobe reader or disable EPM in Internet Explorer.

I have done both and still can not open a web PDF!!!!


Did you install the Active X Control from Adobe?

  • Open Acrobat Reader 11.
  • Click on Edit -> Preferences.
  • Click on General on the side bar.
  • Click on the button Select Default PDF Handler.
  • Click on the drop down box and select Adobe Reader XI.
  • Click on Apply and then OK to exit out the dialogs.
