RIGHT-click on the attachment and SAVE the PDF.

If all PDF files open w/ Windows Media Center, re-install Adobe reader -

Sorry, i came back later and could not find the thread i had created. thinking it had not posted i created a new one. i have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader (9.3) and continue to have the problem. if i right click on the file and save it i can bring up reader and open it that way but it is not a satisfactory answer. media center should not be trying to open a pdf file.

Confused

I'm having the same problem...not only with email attachments, but ANY PDF file.

I've uninstalled and re-installed the newest Adobe Reader. I even downloaded some PDF reader...something called Babylon....very invasive...and pdf files STILL are intercepted by Windows Media Center.
Help please. This is most annoying.
