Windows live mail problems

Hi, I've just installed 7 and using windows live mail as email . However when I receive a mail with a pdf attachment I'm unable to open it. I have gone to internet options and set pdf to open with adobe reader, but error message says that there is no program set up to open this file. Initially it tried to open with media player.
Any ideas? Thanks

Try start, default programs, Associate a file type or protocol with a program, scroll down to PDF and select Adobe through the change program tab.

Thanks for quick reply, but I have already set this up in default program, but mail still says thereis no program to open the file. (I do have adobe reader on the computer).

Did some more checking this morning. If I receive a mail with a worddoc, it all opens ok. If I save a pdf file & then open it, that works ok. But it will not open from the windows live screen.
