...of said files? Are you having problems with "All files" as you state, or are they only files with .doc file extensions?
First, Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader can only open .pdf files..Other files, such as .doc files are associated with other programs..(.doc files are opened by Microsoft Word or possibly "OpenOffice") Do you have Microsoft Word on your computer?
If so, you must "reassociate" those files with the appropriate program..RIGHT click on a .doc file in "My Documents", select "Open With" from the menu that pops up. When the "Open With" box loads, place a CHECK mark in the box next to "Always use this program to open this file type", then select "Microsoft Word" (or Winword.exe)(Or possibly the OpenOffice program if that's what you have installed) from the list in the top of the box and double click on it.
The .doc file should now open with Microsoft Word or your Open Office program.
Hope this helps.
I am of the opinion that this new message should be directed to Grif as he would be familiar with my last thread of date 10/10/05 entitled ''Pdf995 & Office xp pro'', in this forum. It seems to me that my now problem is related to it in some way.
I run xp pro. My o/s is as follows: -

I succeeded in deleting pdf995 from my system as stated in my last reply. However it now occurred today, when I attempt to open any file in my documents, Adobe opens and I get the following message: -
''Adobe Reader could not open Doc. because it is either not a supported file or because the file has been damaged, (for example, it was sent as an e-mail attachment and was not correctly decoded)''.
As a result I have not been able to open any files in My Documents.
Your assistance in this premise is needed as I have a lot of work to do in files situate in My Documents.
I shall be greatful for kind consideration.
