What is acropdf.dll?

Part of Adobe PDF Browser Control by Adobe Systems

What is it?

Adobe PDF Browser Control for Internet Explorer allows Adobe PDF formated files to be loaded and displayed in the web browser.
Description of acropdf.dll from Adobe Systems
When you install Acrobat or Adobe Reader on a system with a browser, you automatically configure the browser to open PDF files within the browser window. Acrobat and Adobe Reader install ActiveX plug-in files that allow you to use Internet Explorer or AOL to open PDF files. To open PDF files in a browser window, the ActiveX folder must contain the following files: Acropdf.dll; Acroiehelper.dll; Gbdetect.dll; and Pdfshell.dll.

How is acropdf.dll loaded?

Safe for scripting control - acropdf.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000} with and identifier of CLSID\{CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - acropdf.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000} with and identifier of CLSID\{CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
