Windows 7: PDFs not viewing still in Windows 7 64 bit

PDFs not viewing still in Windows 7 64 bit

I am familiar with this solution to view PDF thumbnails in Windows 7 64 bit but for some reason my new install of Windows 7 on a rip machine it will not work. After I used the installer it actually removed all the custom .iso files I set for icons on my desktop. No effect on the PDF thumbs. Any suggestions?? I really hoped it would work because I go through hundreds of PDFs for print everyday.

did you have both the options check in the installer, for previews and the handler
if you still have issues with it
try this..
If you havent already, install adobe reader XI, go to edit / preferences then click the "set default handler"

then it should show thumbs.

If you do not have any specific reason to go with Adobe reader - I've been using the free Nitro Reader for a few years now, Thumbnails & previews work plus it allows a lot more than the free version from adobe

just make sure you get the 64bit version

the issue was with the download. After I redownloaded the program it worked. I run through several thousand .pdfs for print, if you can suggest a better solution I am up for it.

Thank you Barmam. I got Nitro the other day and your reminder of 32/64 bit made me take a peak. I had 32 and should of had 64 which I just installed.

If Nitro won't work there's Foxit reader too. Best PDF Reader
