Default Reader 7.0.1 fixes links from Office docs

Adobe has released a 7.0.1 update to Adobe Reader that (among other things) is supposed to fix problems with the original Reader 7 version that caused links from MS Office documents to fail.

Before: typically you'd click on a link to a PDF and see a little flash as Reader loaded then quit. And that would be that.

Now: I've only tested with links from PowerPoint but after installing the update, they work exactly as expected. Click the link, up comes Reader with the PDF loaded. Perfect.

On Windows, you can get the update by starting Reader then choosing Help, Check for Updates (requires an internet connection). After the updater has downloaded, Reader quits automatically. Sit on your hands. It may take a few seconds for the updater to wake up after that, so be patient.
