Windows 7: PDF Fix?

PDF Fix?

In a reply in an earlier post I described not being able to do ANYTHING with pdf. files. I can't save, can't open new ones. I can open already saved pdf if I right click and tell it to open with Adobe/pdf. Otherwise it tries to open as a Word Document, which of course does NOT work. After I started experiencing this problem I noticed the icons have changed for the programs. They don't display the Adobe logo any more. I just enlarged to Extra Large Icons so I could better determine what the logo says, and they are displaying W.... for WORD? Why? How did these get changed? I have a document saved in an online application I work in that I cannot even save as a pdf on my computer. Will someone please tell me what to do to fix this.
I removed Adobe and reinstalled it yesterday. It didn't seem to help one bit. My settings must be off somewhere.

hmm... looks like the default program for pdfs has been changed, right click a pdf, go to open with, click choose default program in the sub-menu and click adobe acrovat or reader depending on what you use and you should be able to read them again.
