Can't open pdfs in Safari - pdfs crash often - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

Hello! I'm MAC 10.4.11 - using CS3 - Acrobat Pro 9 Recently reinstalled CS3 due to other issues. Related or unrelated to that...now I can't open PDFs in Safari...they just spin forever. Also have some PDFs crash after about 30 sec. or so when open on my desktop. Saw something about using tail 4.1.5 to help? Not familiar with tail. Re-install Acrobat 9. Maybe update Acrobat Reader? What's up? Any ideas? Help!...

    In Acrobat 9 Pro, try choosing Help > Repair Acrobat Installation. It's worth a try, no guarantees.

    I had the same problem when I switched from Acrobat 7 to 8. I do not have 9 yet, so I don't know if this will fix it. In your Acrobat preferences, open the Internet pane and check display pdf in browser using: and make sure Acrobat 9 is selected.

    Drove me nuts for a week trying to figure it out when it happened to me. Hope this helps.
