    File type registry (Acrobat Reader 6.0)

    I have a client, whose machine will NOT remember the registry settings of Acrobat Reader 6.0. These settings are not being made during the install. <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15>
    After adding the files type and setting in the Folder options and checking the always use, Explorer will not remember the settings. Also will not work from IE, get message Acrobat reader not found. <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15>

    Any suggestions?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Does Adobe's installer require that he be an administrator and, if so, is he? Hard to think of anything else...

    I have now installed AcrobatReader 6.0 on 5 different machines, and this is the only one that I am having this problem with. All were installed using the user account with Admin permissions.

    Yes, many times, and made sure that the folders were gone.

    Did you install it from Installation Mode (Control panel | Add or Remove Programs | Add New Programs)? If yes, reinstall it once again, restart computer after installation and check file associations. If they are gone, it can be some other problem that caused Registry Checker to restore an earlier backup of the Registry. Check Event log.
