I've seen this happen when opening a program via a shortcut (for example. LNK file), you are asked what type of program to open it with. After selecting Adobe Reader or Acrobat (or another program) via the Select a program from a list of programs installedand check always use the selected program to open this type of file, the program referenced by the shortcut of origin or document opens in Adobe as it should.

The problem is that now all shortcuts (for example. LNK files) on the desktop or in the browser will want to use the Adobe Reader to view the shortcut no matter what shortcut was initially intended to open and be opened by Adobe Reader. This is known as a file association and the default icon. The same condition can occur if you have performed these actions 'Open with' on one. JPG or even a. EXE, but the. LNK explanation is much more likely for the items on the desktop.

The good news is that a small free utility was written to cancel the. LNK file association was created. There is also a registry hack to achieve, but I recommend the utility unASSOC for its ease of use.

You can get a copy of my SkyDrive here. I used to send people elsewhere to download a copy, but this page is more confusion with misleading ads to download this and that.

Just download and then run the utility to unassociate the. LNK files. Select. LNK in the list on the left and click on remove the associated file (user) or remove the file type , and then restart the computer.
