O.K. Let's see if I can explain the latest mess I've gotten myself into... A friend of mine created some business forms for me, with WORD PAD. I went to run them in my laptop. When I attempted to open one of the files, the box said "open with". Well, I chose adobe (not realizing these were not pdf files), and I was taken to acrobat, where I was informed that the files were not pdf files and could not be read in acrobat. So...I simply went back to the CD file box to try something else. Guess what? Now most of the files are "marked" with the abobe icon, and will not open in Word pad! My laptop has them marked as adobe files, nomatter if I remove and rerun the CD. Any ideas? I even uninstalled Adobe, thinking that might do it. Nope, the files are still marked with the adobe icon. I can open the CD in my desktop computer, and they still work.
