ok hear is the deal. Acrobat writer 6 (the one that can make pdf's) is installed. Acrobat reader 9 is installed
when i try to open a pdf (in IE) that needs Acrobat Reader 9 it gives me a error saying i need to update to 8 or 9.

i downloaded the file and right clicked > open with > Acrobat reader 9 (always use this program) and i still get the same error. Acrobat writer wants to keep opening the pdf.

tried to reinstall reader 9 again but still get the same thing.

is there a way to get reader 9 to read it and not Acrobat writer 6.

Open Windows Explorer and navigate to any PDF file. Right click and select "Open With" Select "Choose Program" and navigate to the executable for Reader 9 and select it. Check the box that says "Always use selected program..." and click OK.

There is also a Customization Wizard from Adobe that you can use to change the association as well.
