Windows 7: Adobe Reader 9.4 doesn't open

Adobe Reader 9.4 doesn't open

I have Windows7 and Adobe Reader 9.4 just downloaded however, I can't open a PDF directly from IE8 (I had the 9.1 version with the same problem so I uninstalled it and tried 9.4 - no luck!).
I have been on several support forums and have tried the following advice to no avail:
  1. Disenabled the Adobe PDF Link Helper
  2. Automatic configuration turned off
  3. Display PDF in browser button turned on in Adobe Reader settings.
Nothing helps!
PDF files saved on my computer open but there are PDF files that I can only open directly from IE (I can't save them.)

Any advice? Will an older version of Adobe Reader help?
