It took me nearly a half hour just to get this far since I couldn't comment without login, and I couldn't login because my old id must have expired, and then the origina discussion wouldn't let me comment directly on their post, but finally I can say "thank you" to x3sw for posting this same question and a working solution.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Registry edit worked...of course at first it didn't and I didn't know why and then after some investigation I realized that one of the quotation marks was missing and ~viola~, like magic Windows 7 would finally recognize Reader as a viable option for opening PDFs.
Claudio, I did find the tutorials helpful, but I do not see any reply option on the discussions, and only have the one option to print under the actions tab. Should I assume this is some sort of read-only view? Thanks!

The easiest way to associate PDF files with Reader is to uninstall it, then reinstall the latest version.

I tried that and it still didn't work. I found the answer to my problem from Fran in Ohio's post. All I had to do was go into my Adobe shortcut and when the screen came up do the following
UNCHECK -> Enable Prtotected Mode at Startup
then hit ENTER.
After that my Adobe worked fine and I was able to view and print information from my Adobe screen.
