win764bit pc and adobe reader 9

When I first started using adobe reader 9 I would get a image of the first page of the pdf doc and now I get PDF icon. How do I get the first of the pdf to show as the pdf icon again?
TIA

Hi there,

Try the fix mentioned in this blog post: Fix for Adobe PDF preview handler on 64-bit Windows

Note: Use caution when editing the registry -- always back up important data first.

Cheers,

I tried the first one and 3 of the icons show the first page of the pdf. I have several hunderd pdfs and they where showing (most of them).

Should I reverse the regedit steps?

and try the create a Reg file? And do I copy and paste into the Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Where is the
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ?
TIA
