There are two possible solutions to your problem I would recommend the first one

1) Install Acrobat Reader 5.0 or later You can download the latest version of Acrobat Reader free of charge from Adobe's Web site at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

2) Confirm that Windows associates only PDF and FDF files with Acrobat Reader If you are uncertain how to do this, detailed information can be found on Adobe's website at the following link: http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/ac22.htm
