Hello, ever since I tried to open a Memo.4ma attachment emailed to me, my pdf files open with Word and are unreadable...they apear in encoding format, gibberish to me, ....however when I use another computer, I haven't the problem at all. Its a problem singular to my computer and how can I force my pdf files to open in Adobe Reader?? Please assist me in my grief...much thanks in advance. Willy H

Just right click the file, choose properties tab. In the general tab you will see the "CHANGE" tab. All you need to do is click change tab and click "adobe reader". You will notice that all your pdf files will return to normal. I hope this helps
Thank you
