I just posted a query on this forum for the exact same problem, then found your post. Did you ever solve the problem? If you did, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks,
I'm trying to rememer exactly what I did to get rid of the problem....
I believe I went into Windows Explorer, Tools, and File Types, looked for exe in the list. If there, delete it. Then choose new, type in exe, click advanced, then choose application.
I THINK that was all I did....
In Vista you can do this from the Control Panel under Set Program Access and Defaults.
It will open a Window where you can choose from ALL file types currently on the HD and then you can set the default program for them.
This is a sporadic thing in Windows where upon occasion, the latest application installed is suddenly set as the default application for EVERYTHING. Windows does it, not the app itself, because it happens with ALL kinds of software.
I've never been able to find a good, workable solution for it.
Thanks to Scott and Nothing at All for your replies. I have Windows 7, but it should still work. I haven't re-installed Adobe Reader yet, but Nothing at All's comment about this being a Windows issue is helpful. So I'll work on this soon. Thanks,
Hi, I have the same problem as boweasel and Integral D, and i'm trying to look for a solution.
Did you two managed to solve the problem? And how?
Happened to me this morning running Windows 7. Reader wasn't open
ning PDF's as a default. I went to properties clicked some button and now all my icons are PDF icons and Word tries to open in Reader. Help.
