    WIN7 SP1, IE10, Adobe Reader XI

    This one has me stumped.

    With DoNotTrackMe Plus enabled, .pdf file opening hangs. I get the Abode .dll confirmation from IE10 to disable EPM and I disable for the site. Then the download just stops and the IE tab goes blank. With DNT+ disabled, the .pdf download works fine.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    I believe DNT+ is "choking on" .pdf files displayed in protected mode.

    Also appears DNT+ does something to IE10 when this happens. What I have observed is IE is not shutdown cleanly when a hang up occurs in the .pdf file download. I have to go into task manager an kill multiple iexplorer.exe processes running after exiting from IE10.

    So DNT+ has been uninstalled on my PC.
