    Hi I have a big problem that I can't find help to anywhere!

    I'm pretty sure I accedentially clicked something the other day and then all my executable files (except itunes, i dont know why) tried to open with adobe reader, but couldn't.

    So I uninstalled adobe and everything went back to normal, except that I need to read pdf's! So I installed it again thinking It will be fixed and it did it again, and all my desktop icons were adobe icons.

    I after countless times of looking on the net at really confusing explanations, I did a system restore but the furtherest I could date back wasnt far enough to before I pressed this.

    Anyway, now all my files open into the correct one, yet all my icons are still adobe?

    Can someone kindly please help me with this and not make it too confusing for a beginner computer user?

    Thankyou so much!
    Oh and I have windows 7

    Have you tried going to 'Default Programs'. You can find that in the start menu, on the right.
