Very odd pdf behavior / really need help w this one.

Jul 9, 2012 9:20 AM

When I install Adobe Reader, ALL pinned icons & ALL links to other programs are changed to shortcut to adobe reader.


As soon as I un-install Adobe Reader, icons & program shortcuts revert.


To test I also installed Foxit Reader & that worked normally for a while. Then it, too, mimiced the Adobe Reader behavior.


From this I deduce something is happening when I try to open a pdf file, no matter what reader I am using.


I am up to date with ESET NOD32 program & definition files.


Currently I cannot read any pdf file.


Running Win7 Home premium


Thank you.

    What is "Win7Fix"?

    I did actually look at that page and searched for "Win7Fix", but now I understand that you did not mean it literally.


    I think since everything is working you shouldn't worry about the incomplete merge.
