Hi,

Have a Dell Vostro 3500 running Win 7 32 bit. When trying to view a pdf from within IE, it will attempt to open it with Windows Media Center. Adobe Reader has been installed, and when checking file assocaitions in Windows and IE, they are set to Adobe Reader. Now, if you save the pdf to the desktop, or some other location on the hard drive, it will then open with Adobe Reader as it should. Does anyone have a clue on how to correct this?

Best Regards,
oneof4.

Right click on the PDF file and choose to always open with Adobe ... be sure you check the box.

Hi Jacee, :)

It's good to see you again!

Right click on the PDF file and choose to always open with Adobe ... be sure you check the box.

I'm assuming you mean once the file is saved to the desktop?

Irregardless, this thing appears to have fixed itself! I asked the user to download Google Chrome, and try it from there, and voila! it worked. Now, I asked her to try IE again, and believe it or not, it works! There was no reboot of the laptop during this whole process, so I'm not really sure how it corrected itself, but anyway problem solved.
