    unable to open pdf file - brings up paint.net

    lcat123

      Op: Win XP SP3, IE7

      When I try to open a pdf file from my e-mail it gives me the window to open/save file (which I say open) and then it diverts immediately to paint.net program with a message:

      "the image type is not recognized and cannot be opened"

      I seem to remember this happening before, and I think I ended up deleting paint.net. However, my kid really likes the paint software. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

      Also, I do seem to remember updating the flash player... could this have anything to do with my problem as well?

      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance!

      btw... I just updated to reader 9 and got the same error message
