    Adobe PDF Plugin disabled in Outlook and Word.

    Hello friends,
    I am having this problem from the last week. Adobe PDF Plugin is disabled in Outlook and Word. When I tried to enable it in the Outlook and when I tried to go to New Message, my Outlook crashes. I don't know why this is happening. Anyone else having the same problem. Please help me.
    Thank you.

    1. Open the Microsoft Office program (Word, Excel, Publisher, or Excel).
    2. Go to Help > About [program name].
    3. Click Disabled Items.
    4. Select Adobe PDF from the list and click Enable.
    5. Quit the Microsoft Office program and then restart it.
    I hope this will help you.

    Make sure PDFMaker components are installed. You can do this in the following ways.
    1. Choose Start > Run, type appwiz.cpl in the Open text box, and then click OK to open the Add Or Remove Programs dialog box.
    2. Locate and select Adobe Acrobat 7 and click Change/Remove.
    3. When the Wizard appears, click Next.
    4. Select Modify and click Next again.
    5. Expand the Create Adobe PDF tree view, and then click on the down arrow on the Acrobat PDFMaker object.
    6. Select "This feature will be installed on the local hard drive," click Next, and then click Update.

    You have to enable the COM add-in filein the Office application. You can use following steps to do this.
    1. Start the Office application.
    2. Choose Help > About [application].
    3. Click Disabled Items.
    4. Check the list for PDFMakerOfficeAddin:
    * If it's listed, select it and click Enable. Close all dialog boxes and restart the Office application.
    * If it's not listed, make sure that PDFMOfficeAddin.dll is located in the Acrobat 7.0/PDFMaker/Office folder. If the file is missing, reinstall Acrobat.
