Adobe X by default opens my PDF/A file read-only; how can I open this file and edit it?

Edit>Preferences>Documents>PDF/A View mode. Set view documents in PDF/A mode to "never".

I change this through the registry, but eveytime I close Adobe Acrobat and restart it, it changes back to Read only mode... How can I make never the default?

In Acrobat X (10.1.14) on my Mac the instruction path that worked was Acrobat / Preferences / PDF/A View Mode > Never.
