    Setting Adobe Reader 9 as default PDF reader for IE7

    Community Member

      I made the mistake of installing Foxit Reader on my new PC and am trying to stop Internet Explorer 7 from using it as the default pdf reader instead of Adobe Reader 9.

      By re-installing Adobe Reader 9 the problem with Windows Explorer using it was solved but Internet Explorer still keeps trying to open PDF files using Foxit Reader.

      When installing the Foxit Suite the installation was not 100% successfull on Windows Vista 64 bit with the Uninstall.exe file not being created and the program not being listed under add/remove programs.

      Does anyone know how to set Adobe Reader 9 as the default PDF reader used by Internet Explorer 7.

      Thanks for any advice.
