SP2010: Opening PDF from SharePoint in IE8 Browser

We have got one user who cant open a PDF in her browser. IE8
As far as we are aware all other users have got no issues.

iFilters for PDF is configured (Will add a post for this) and there is a icon uploaded to SharePoint.

The possible causes according to a quick search:

  • Acrobat or Reader can't read the PDF file.
  • The web browser isn't configured correctly with the Adobe PDF Browser plug-in.
  • The web server on which the PDF file is stored can't serve the PDF file.
  • You are using a 64-bit version of the Internet Explorer browser. 
So i recommended that they try the 32Bit version of IE and that did the job

PS: This is apparently not needed in SharePoint 2013 anymore.. Still need to test it.
