Notepad opens Adobe Reader

When I receive an e-mail with an attachment Notepad comes up first? I don't want this to happen. I want the Adobe Reader to kick in first.
Could anyone suggest how I can sort this. I am using Vista.

I think you are saying that a PDF attachment opens in Notepad when it should be Adobe. Go to Control Panel from the start button and select Classic View from the left hand column. Now select Default Programs and then Associate a File Type. Once Loaded scroll down to .PDF and select it. (It should show Notepad if my first assumption is correct) Select change and choose Adobe Reader from the list.
