Question about PC Desktops
Seems like you have problem with versions.
which version of acrobat you have installed?
is it the reader?
which error message is displayed?
The Delete Temporary Internet Files fix usually resolves the 'wrong file type' issue.
Delete the Temporary Internet Files cache used by the MSIE browser.
Close all web browser windows.
Right-Click on the "Internet Explorer" icon (large lower-case blue 'e') visible on the desktop.
Choose "Properties" and make sure the first tab, "General" is selected.
Click the middle "Delete Files" button (see dialog box as shown below) and then wait as long as necessary for the computer to clean up. (The first time will take a few minutes on some computers, succeeding cycles are usually much quicker.)
Return to the web site and try clicking on the .pdf document link again.
Repeat as necessary.
You can also try alternative Software.
More and more often, the free Foxit PDF Reader is being recommended as an lightweight and capable alternative to Adobe's various Reader editions.
