PDF Files no longer open with Microsoft Office

My computer has always opened PDF files thru Microsoft Office and now when they open everything is all jumbled and unreadable. I have to close and reopen using Adobe Reader. Can anyone tell me what happened to cause this change?

i cann't tell what's wrong with the problem here. i think you can use some pdf software to open and process pdf file instead of loading pdf through Word Office software.
