Outlook not opening PDF files

Hi all
I installed a SSD and Windows 7 last weekend and all working pretty well. One issue I've got is when I try to open pdf email attachments in Outlook the system defaults to Office Picture Manager or sometimes Windows Media Player.

Apart from saving the attachment to my desktop and opening with Adobe Reader separately I haven't been able to find a way of resolving this.

Any ideas??

I using Office Pro 2007 with Windows7 Home Premium 32 bit. And Adobe Reader X

Try this: First press the Shift Key, then right-click on the file. You should see a drop-down list with the option, "Open With". Click on that and you should see Adobe which you can select.

Hi Frank1
Thanks for that. I've tried it but doesn't work for me. I've changed a few things in Adobe and Outlook.exe and now an option to preview pops up which does open in Adobe. Looks like I've sorted it for now but not quite sure how - but hey it works!!
