what type of file are you trying to open? PDF file?
I can't download pdf or any kind
OK, let's reinstall Adobe Reader I will provide the link.
It goes into some kind of download file on my desktop and I can't open them. It says I have to find the right browser to open them in
OK, right click on the file downloaded on the desktop. Then select properties from the pop up menu.
Another box will appear click on the "Change" box and select Adobe Reader from the list and click OK.
close out the boxes and try to open the file.
The only programs in the open with are IE and Microsoft OfficeWord
OK, so we need to install Adobe Reader. I will provide the link.
Use the link provided, when you reach the site click on "Download Installer" then "Run". The site will download and install Adobe Reader for you. When done try to open the file on your desktop.Click here>>>Adobe Reader Download
I am on a different computer. Can you tell me the link
Sure give me a sec.
Type following address in the address bar:http://ninite.com/reader/
pop up says ninite reader install. Do I save file
only opt is cancel or save
OK, sorry I seen your using Firefox. Yes save then run the file after it's downloaded.
pop up says all files have been dowloaded
OK double click on the ninite file to start the installer.
screen says change apps then it will begin downloading shortly but nothing happens
Did you double click on the ninite file you downloaded?
There is no file just a screen that says This Ninite indtaller includes. There are abt 20 files in the downloads. Do I just click on one of them

OK, right click on the file and select properties. Click "change" select adobe reader.
If I right click on the pdf file it gives me the option to open with adobe reader and when I do this it will open the file. Is there a way to do that automatically and not go through the right click opt
