Win8.1 will no longer open pdf's automatically, left with an old scan doc!!

Win8.1 must have decided I have had it too easy and now I am suffering.

I get emails with pdf attachements and to open all I did was click etc, until today, now when I click all I get open is a document I scanned in a week ago and I cant budge it from the screen! I cant even find adobe on my pc!! This happened before I allowed a Windows update.

The truth is I am totally lost when it comes to win8.1 ie not a clue what to do! I ahd win xp pro for about 10 years and NEVER had this type of hassle.

If Adobe Reader is installed on your PC it will be listed in Programs & Features in Control Panel.

If not you can download from Adobe Select OS - Language - Version - choose English (UK) 11.0.10
