Adobe Reader doesn't create pdf files. What did you download?
What is the file extension of the photos that "were changed"? Unless it is .pdf, then nothing has changed. I suspect what happened is that those files are now defaulted to open in Adobe Reader. Go to Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types, scroll down to the file extension such as jpg and choose Opens with (your chosen program - perhaps Microsoft Paint).
You may have to uncheck box in Folder Options > View > "Hide extensions for known file types", to see the file extensions of your files.
Berndt and David,
Thanks for trying to help me.
I have checked the following:
1. Photos in question now have a .pdf file extension.
2.I recently downloaded Acrobat.com, Adobe Air, Adobe reader 9.0 and Adobe Flash Player Active X.
3. I went to Control Panel, Folder Option and had 3 tabs to choose from: 1. General 2. View 3. Search.
I reviewed each option under the 3 tabs and I did not find an option to change or do anything with file extensions such as .jpeg, etc.
4. My OS is Vista Home.
Please advise next steps or some idea on what I can do, try, chcek on for you, etc.
Many thanks! I am grateful.
Not sure if this will work. Try renaming one of the files to have the jpg extension, then try opening it in Microsoft Paint or some other image viewing program. There is a chance that the files were renamed, but not converted.
Then again, maybe they were actually converted. See if the following link is any help. I just stumbled on it in a Google Search.
to add more for david batson, to Associate A File Type Or Protocol With A Program, you need to goto Control Panel, then click Default Programs, then choose Associate A File Type Or Protocol With A Program, scroll down to the file extension such as jpg and choose Opens with (your chosen program - perhaps Microsoft Paint).
