There are free readers that can read PDF files- one such is foxit, another is downloading acrobat reader directly from Adobe, which would allow you to install it on your system: www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Make sure only adobe 9 is the only version of adobe reader you have installed on that computer. Then go to where your PDF file is and right click on it with the mouse and go into properties.
In the general tab where it says type of file it will show you what program is opening up the PDF file. Click on the change button and where it says recommended programs see if Adobe reader is there, if its not then down below where it says other programs click on the down arrow and see if adobe reader shows up there. If it shows up in either section then choose it, then click on apply, and then click on okay.
Now if for some reason adobe reader doesn't show up in either section, then you'll need to browse for it. It normally installs itself in the program files folder, then double-click on it and go into the adobe folder, Adobe 9.0 and then the reader folder. The name of the reader program looks something like acrord32 and it will say application to the right of it. At that point choose it and apply the changes so it opens up with Adobe reader.
This should cover everything, if your still having problems, let me know and I'll help you out further.
to check if it set to english go to your control panel to Date,Time,Langaugeand regional settings. in there theres a icon with region and language options written underneath selet it and the lanague your system is set at is in there
You probably have Adobe reader which will allow you to read an Adobe document but not write a pdf file. For that you have to buy Adobe Acrobat. There are, however, free packages that will convert a file into pdf format. Try googling for "convert a file into pdf" or something similar.
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.
