          This is a "file association" issue.


          Download the PDF (or use one already on your system).

          1. Right click the PDF and choose Properties.
          2. Next to where it says Open With click the Change button.
          3. Choose Adobe Reader from the list of programs. (If it isn't listed, click Browse and navigate to Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe and select it)
          4. Check the box that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file"
          5. Click OK
          6. Click Apply and click OK again.
          7. PDFs will now be "associated" with Reader 9 instead of Word.
