PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win95SE
Problem Application Name & Version:Acrobat Reader 5.0
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Pentium II 333mhz 112mg mem
Error Messages:None except wrong program opens



Was a time when if I opened an e-mail attachment with a PDF file or Downloaded a PDF file  acrobat reader opened up automatically and I could read it. Now Notepad opens up instead and there is a load of gobbledegook and it is unreadable. If I save files to disk and open up Acrobat reader I can read the item which is on the disk. Has my son clicked on something and done this and how do I overcome this
problem to revert to the old way.

Hi,

It appears PDF file are associated with notepad.

1. Open Windows Explorer, find a PDF file, click on it once to select it.
2. Hold down the <SHIFT> key and right click the file.
3. Select "Open with..."
4. Find Acrobat Reader in the list
5. Check "Always use this program to open this type of file" and hit OK

This will associate PDF files with Acrobat Reader

That's great! Grin

Keep an eye on those bad sectors! You should run a surface scan at a minimun once a week and if it keeps finding new bad sectors, consider replacing the drive.

IMPORTANT: Make a backup of your important files now!
