When trying to view documents online Runtime Error: Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe appears?

All of a sudden I cannot open a PDF file. Here is what I get:
The file opens and then seconds late a the message below pops up. It allows me to retry once to open the file and then ends the program to avoid an endless loop.
X Runtime Error
ProgramC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\:explore.exe
This application has requested Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application support team for more information.
I am running on Windows 7 Home Premium, on a Toshiba Laptop, and Running Adobe 10.1.3.
Any andvice would be great.

Are you trying to open the file from Internet explorer? Or is it a PDF file stored on your machine?

If you are getting this error while opening a file from IE, then try the below steps
1) Open Adobe Standard/Pro/Reader from Start->Programs.
2) Edit-> Preferences->Internet-> Display PDF in Browser. Uncheck this option if selected.
3) Click on Ok and close IE windowd and Adobe
4) Try to open the files from IE now and see if it works for you.

If you are opening a desktop PDF file then what is the application you have? is it standard or professional or reader?
In this case probably you can try restarting machine. If it still causes issue ten you need to uninstall and reinstall the software.
