I am using Windows 7 with 2007 Outlook. When I try to open a pdf attached file it opens up Windows Media Centre and not the file. I have Adobe 9 installed. Any ideas how I can rectify this.

Hi harrygas, welcome to the forum. Adobe Acrobat Reader will open .pdf files. Is that the Adobe 9 you are referring to?

The current Reader version is Adobe Reader X (10.1.2) and can be downloaded and installed over the top of the old version.

There are some excellent .pdf readers available in freeware online that are more flexible and many people prefer them, myself included. After uninstalling the Adobe Reader, I downloaded \ installed Nitro PDF Reader.
