If you open Adobe Reader first and then on the File menu click Open - navigate to the file you want and double-click - does it open then?

Yes it does if I open Adobe reader first

If you right-click the file, and select Open With - click on Adobe Reader - does that work?

  Ennismore 19:09 05 May 09

Yes it does thanks for your help

To make sure it opens normally in future do as before:

Right-click the file

Select Open With

Click on Choose Program

Highlight Adobe Reader

Tick the box - Always Use The Selected Program to Open This Kind of File and click OK.

In future that file should open with a double-click.
