When trying to open a PDF file that is attached to email I get the error that it needs to set the association. Yet when I open a PDF document it opens automatically. What is the problem with opening an attached pdf file?

You need to set one of your browsers as the default browser.

How to Set your Default Programs

If no luck,

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.
