Designate Program to View a File
Belarc tells me that I am running "Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (build 2600)" I have kept it up to date. Why replace what works just fine and is not broken (save that it may be compromised because MS no longer supports it.)
I use Secunia to tell me when I need to update software. From time to time I'm told that I need to update Acrobat Reader to keep my computer secure. I own a copy of Acrobat Professional. I prefer to use it to view and manipulate PDF files. Each time I update Acrobat Reader it presumes that Reader is the application of choice for experiencing PDF files. For me, it isn't. I know and prefer Acrobat Professional.
I've tried searching for a protocol for resetting Acrobat Professional as the tool to use when I open a PDF file. Google returns a plethora of useless advice. Color me confused!
There must be a simple way to reset my preference for Acrobat Professional. What is it, please?
Thanks in advance.

Open Windows Explorer.
Hold down the Shift key and right click on a PDF.
Select "Open with",
Choose the required program, you may have to browse to the folder where the program is installed.
Ensure the "Always use the selected program..." box is ticked.
