Can anyone help?

If you save the PDF file to your desktop; right-click on it, choose "Open file with..." then select Adobe Reader and tick "always open files of this type with this program" (or words to that effect).

Right click on the file name
then Open with
and select Adobe from the list

That will sort it this time round, and (in Vista) there is a box to tick to make it always deal with adobe files in this way.

(Assuming you're on XP)If it's saved on your pc, in Windows explorer or My Computer right click on the file & choose Open with.. then click on Adobe from the list. If you want to change all pdfs so they open with Adobe, click on Choose program & put a tick in the box that says Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.
