Question about HP TouchSmart Computers & Internet
I have trouble opening files. Different types. Within emails or things I have downloaded. I use Firefox. When it gives me a choice of which program to use for opening most of the choices are photo and media. I have Open Office and set it as my default, but that is never one of the choices. I also have adobe reader, but it always says it cant open too.
If you are using Win8, read this
if you are using Win7, just click Start, type in the search "default", click "Default Programs", then the rest is as described in the Win8 link.

SOURCE: when opening a program adobe
what file are you trying to open? adobe reader only opens documents in pdf and adobe format. when opening a program, right click then choose "open with" option, and select the appropriate program to open the file with. most of them open with internet explorer or ms word.

SOURCE: Encoded email
Yes, you cannot just open a .pdf file (Adobe format) by opening it as a text file. It will look like a bunch of strange characters if you try to open it on Notepad or Word.
Did you reboot your computer after installing Adobe Acrobat Reader? After installation any .pdf files will be opened automatically by Adobe Reader, but only after your computer is restarted.
Also, if you look in your email on the list of files attached, the file should have a name ending in .pdf. That's how the system recognizes it as an Adobe Acrobat file. If it doesn't have the correct extension, you'll need to save it and change the file type. The way you do that depends on which Windows you have an if you're hiding the extension type (which is the default setting).
Worstcase, you can just have your friend open it and print it for you.
By the way, I wish you hadn't rated my answer as "Inappropriate". I got a score of 40/100 instead of 70/100 for a "Thanks for Trying"... :-( Anyway, hope that helps you out.

Windows Live Hotmail allows users to view attachments within a Web browser or save them to the system's hard drive.
If Hotmail can't open an attachment, the problem lies with an incompatible file format or Hotmail's automatic blocking service.
You may need new software installed on your computer IE: adobe . direct x , zip for opening unfamiliar formats, while blocked files are permanently inaccessible from within Hotmail.
Accessing these files requires action by the sender or forwarding the file to a different email client.
Incompatible File Format
Occasionally a sender may attach a file that simply doesn't work with any software you have installed on the system.
Attempting to open the attachment will result in a "Windows cannot open this file" message or similar error display.
Many programs use very specific file formats that don't operate with most other software, such as Photoshop's PSD image files or Microsoft PowerPoint's PPT files.
Ask the sender to convert the file to a more widely compatible format, or install the appropriate software on the system to open the attachment.
Hotmail blocks attachments it believes may contain unsafe or otherwise malicious code.
This includes any and all executable file types, including MSI, EXE, HTML, STC and COM files, along with many others.
Attachments blocked in this way result in a "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments" message when viewing the email.
While this service does block many real threats to system security, Hotmail may occasionally deny access to an item from a trusted sender.
Unfortunately, these files become permanently inaccessible once blocked by Hotmail, and accessing them requires using a workaround outside the Hotmail application.
Only attempt to access attachments you trust as safe.
While Hotmail cannot open blocked attachments, it allows users to forward the message with the blocked file still attached.
Send the file to a different email client, and open the attachment using that account instead.
Note other clients may have different security measures, but some will still block access to executable files and other potentially harmful data.
Ask the sender to package the attachment into a ZIP, RAR or other compressed file format before attaching.
Hotmail will not block any file type located inside a compressed archive.
Both Windows and OS X can create compressed ZIP files, and free utilities such as Zipeg and 7-Zip can create many other types of archives as well.
Some email clients, such as Gmail, will not allow users to send some file formats, even when packaged into an archive file.
Hope this helps
