To fix this problem:
1. Download and install the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader freeware.
2. If you have Netscape Communicator, download and install the latest version. Verify that
Nppdf32.dll is located at
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 4.0\Reader\Browser and C:\Program Files\Netscape\Communicator\Program\Plugins.
3. If Netscape software is NOT installed, copy C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat4.0\Reader\Browser\Nppdf32.dll
to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Plugins.
4. Open the Acrobat Reader, Acrord32.exe. On the File menu, press Preferences and General. Clear the Open Cross-doc Links in Same Window box and close the Acrobat Reader.
NOTE: You could try step 4 to see if it resolves the problem, before doing steps 1 - 3.
NOTE: The latest software may obviate the need for step 4.
