    Every time I want to open a .pdf file in WinXP Pro it opens in WMP10. The icon for .pdf is Acrobat Reader 7 and it is set to open in AR7 by default. Somehow though it keeps opening in WMP10. Ofcourse WMP10 can't open the file. Ofcourse I can just open AR7 and open the file then, but it's very annoying when I download a file and don't save it, but just open it and it won't happen.

    Help please!

    The new Adobe Reader is version 8.1 .... Upgrading it might fix the problem.
    Otherwise the fix is probably in the Folder Options > File Types.

    Seems like I have to go here and fix it occasionally ... for no reason.
