Issue with opening downloaded PDF files

I am having trouble opening documents from downloaded pdfs and from discs that used to be no problem to open. The only thing that appears is the pdf symbol. I have found a way around it by going to the adobe reader file and opening it and then finding the document. But it is really kinda of a hit and miss. Did I install incorrectly?

Sounds like Reader is working ok if you can use File>Open.

How are you trying to open them when it doesn't work (double click...etc?) What happens when you try?

I've been having this same issue, what a pain! I tried uninstalling all of it and re-installing, but now the install simply fails. no explanation. very frustrating...
