THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTION FAST. MY PROBLEM IS , EVERY TIME I OPEN MY FILES I CLICK OK TO OPEN THE FILES AND WINDOWS SHOW IT SAYS WINDOWS CANNOT OPEN THIS FILE: TO OPEN THIS FILE , WINDOWS NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT PROGRAM CREATED IT. WINDOWS CAN GO ONLINE TO LOOK IT UP AUTOMATICALLY, OR YOU CAN MANUALLY SELECT FROM A LIST OF PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO? USE THE WEB SERVICE TO FIND THE APPROPIATE PROGRAM OR SELECT THE PROGAM FROM A LIST. OK OR CANCEL. THIS IS THE PROBLEM IT SHOWS EVERY TIME I WANT TO VIEW MY FILES. PLS I NEED HELP.
If you choose the option manually select from the list - it should give you a list of programs (one of which should be Adobe Reader) if this is not on the list manually browse to the location of it depending on which version you have installed (for example c:\program files\adobe\reader 9.0\reader\acrord32.exe) would be for version 9.
If you cant find the acrord32.exe in any folders under c:\program files\adobe then you have not got acrobat reader installed!!!
thank u for answering my problem fast. if i choose to do option manually adobe reader is not on my list. when i downloaded the adobe reader, it says downloads complete. is adobe reader and acrobat reader is the same.
When you select manual select the program from the list you will be displayed a dialog similar to the one attached (this was from an xp machine - although the vista one wont be to disimilar) notice the BROWSE button.
i forgot to ask u. i already have adobe reader installed its already on my desktop. if cant open or view my files and emails do i need to install adobe reader again. can my computer do the automatic to view my file w/out doing manually to view my files.
I think we have tried everything we can there.
I would use an offline installer for adobe reader there is one http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.0/enu/AdbeRdr90 _en_US.exe
Save it to your desktop and directly install it from there.
I have a different but similiar problem. I have windows xp and adobe reader 8. I cannot open pdf attached files from my email. It wants to open in the web browser but says it can't. If I save them, I can then open them in adobe if I select it. I don't have that option opening them as the pdf attachment. I recall having a popup option to select with an "apply" butten that I erroneously selected internet and hit the apply button. Now I cannot find where I can undo it.
