    Reader X overwrites program icons with PDF icons

    Silly Name

      Reader X has just installed itself as an update, and now all of my program icons have turned into Adobe PDF icons. When I try to open them I get a message that the document cannot be opened as it is an unsupported file type. It has therefor made all of my other programs inaccessible. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it deveral times, and downloading Reader 9.2 and 9.4 instead, but the same problem keeps occurring: as soon as Reader is activated my icons immediately turn to unopenable PDF icons. They revert to their original program icons when I uninstall Reader.


      I am running a fully updated Windows 7 64-bit version. Does anyone have a solution?


      Sorry about the user name - 30 mins wasted trying to find an unused one! Thanks!
