XP Pro SP3 all MS Updates.
Problem occurred after updating Adobe PDF reader to 9.3.0 via the program update feature
File association ok but weird thing is on Limited user account. The icons for a PDF file are not Adobe ones it is a generic one. If I try to open the file it opens with the correct program.
Problem evident on desktop icons and in looking in windows explorer.
If I attach a file in my email program (Outlook Express) it shows the correct icon.
These files were created from various pdf creators. Ofice 2007 Mac SO X 10.4.11 Quartz, Adobe InDesign CS4 (6.0) and InDesigdn CS4 (5.0) so it doesn't seem matter what program created the files.
I am at a loss to figure out how to get the correct icon in the Limited User Account. The correct icons show up in the Admin account. Note the files do open with the adobe reader.
Really could use an answer here thanks.
Gosh anyone out there have any idea how to resolve this? The generic MS icon for the files in the limited user account is annoying as all get out. Anyone out there from Adobe or is this not a monitored forum. Not sure. Thanks
Note: Correct program is accessed just the icons for the PDF files in the limited user account are the generic MS ones.
Install Microsoft Powertoys for Windows XP TweakUI. Go to repair choose repair icons. I was able to get the PDF icon back on both the desktop and windows explorer in the limited user accounts to work.
