Actually, you're probably hitting the same bug I did with IE.  It's 
documented in MS's knowledge base.  Try this:  In acrobat under General 
Prefs you should be able to set acrobat to NOT open the document in IE. 
  Instead, it will open in a standalone acrobat.  Try that and see if it 
fixes the problem.
