Adobe Reader and IE

I noticed that Adobe Reader (7.0) seems to be running all the time on my work computer. I downloaded WinPatrol and cleaned up the startup programs so I know that it is not in there.

However, it appears to piggyback on Explorer (6.0) when I run that. I have looked in the Tools/Options for both programs and I cannot seem to find how to stup it from running every time I run IE. I want it to run when I click on a pdf, but not as a background progar.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
