Topic: Activate links in a PDF

Up until recently, I was able to convert MS Word documents into Adobe Acrobat 5.0 PDFs, and the hyperlinks (email addresses, url's, etc.) within the PDFs would remain active. More recently, I had to remove and reload Adobe Acrobat, but now that I've reloaded the s/w, the hyperlinks within the PDFs are no longer active.
I've compared the settings on my PC to those of my co-workers and they are similar. One difference I've noticed is that my coworkers have a PDFMaker toolbar in their list of toolbars in MS Word. This enables them to tweak the PDF settings for the links while still in Word. I cannot find any information in either Word or Adobe Acrobat about this toolbar.
I've checked the Adobe Acrobat 5.0 disc for any references to PDFMaker. Unfortunately, I didn't find any references to it.
All I want to do is find a way to automatically activate the hyperlinks in the PDF documents - without manually activating each link. I work on documents that have as many as 15 links, and manually activating each link takes a considerable amount of time.
I would be eternally grateful if someone would lend a hand, as I need this capability to perform my daily duties as a technical writer.
