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.

    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.
