The free pdf reader 1.1 Windows program from cnet. They told me to ask you this question to see if you could help me on it.
I downloaded the program. I really like it and wanted it to be my default. However, the computer wont let me. In the window to choose defaults for my computer I can choose it but it wont make it the default. It always goes back to Adobe reader. So to experiment, I uninstalled Adobe reader to see if it would recognize the free pdf reader. I went back into the computer to set my defaults and .pdf was no longer listed, like I didnt have a pdf reader on my computer. When I open any pdf I have to choose open with and then go and find the program and select it before it will open it. Do you know any other way I can make the computer recognize that I want that program for the default? Thanks,

When you use "Open With", select "Choose Program". Select the program, and then check "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
