    Download Unassoc.

    Extract the contents to a folder and run the file unassoc.exe

    Select .PDF from the list and click Delete file type

    The file type association for .PDF is now removed.


    Right-click on the Adobe Reader shortcut and click Run as administrator.

    From the Help menu in Adobe Reader, click Repair Adobe Reader Installation.
