As a rule when you click on a pdf file to download it loads into your browser which can take a long time and you would have to save it by clicking on the save icon.
The best way to download a pdf file is to right click on it and select save as from the popup menu, this saves the file in your download folder where you can view it at your leisure.

You may need to install Acrobat Reader anyway since it ties into your browser directly and may be needed even if you have the full program.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You can also go into acrobat and in the settings section, tell it to open outside of IE. I'm not at my PC right now so I couldn't tell you exactly where to look under settings but have a look around and tell it to open PDF's in Acrobat, not IE.

Good point, I actually didn't register the fact it was a full version he had. Getting slow in my old age, that's my excuse anyway.
