    Icon insertion

    2catsintheyard

      Every time I install Reader 9.1 on Vista Home Premium (on a 6 month old laptop) the Adobe Reader icon replaces the other icons on my desktop and when I click on them I get   This File does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.  Create and association in the Set Associations Control Panel.  When I unistall Reader it goes back to normal and work like it should.   I have tried to go into control panel\programs\set your default programs but I am unable to change anything.  I have also gone into Change default settings for media or devices and have notice the adobe icon inplace of everything else.   Does anyone have a clue to why this is happening?

          Join the club, exactly the same thing has happened to me. Tried all sorts to fix it. The existing icons were overwritten and everything is a link (.lnk) to Reader. Easy solution uninstall Reader and install Foxit. Still, I'd like to know what Adobe has done to my registry. Have attached a screen shot.
