When I receive an e-mail with a pdf attachment it opens as a word encoded document (e.g. garbage). I need to change the default settings for all e-mails haiving a pdf attachment but can't get to properties to change it

Try this

Go to startmenu and type

Default programs and press ENTER

Click on '' associate a file type or protocol with specific program

search for .pdf extension,click on it

On top you have '' change program '' option,click on it and point it to adobe reader

That should solve the issue
