Default Display as icon: default icon for pdf's.

When I insert a pdf, via Insert > Object Object > Create from File, to create a clickable icon in the Word document, the icon that displays is not the Adobe Reader icon, but the Packager.exe icon.
Word and Excel files that are inserted are represented with correct icons, Adobe files are not.


I've checked the filetype association settings in Windows, pdf is set to Adobe Reader.
I can change the icon, which requires a lot of clicking to get to correct file.
How can I make displaying this icon the default setting for pdf files?

Try getting Adobe Acrobat to re-register itself with windows. If you go to Start > Run and input:
Acrobat /regserver
that should do it, though you may need to insert the full path name as well. For example (for Acrobat 8.0):
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 8.0\Acrobat\
Acrobat /regserver
and, if you've only got the reader installed, I think the executable's name is 'AcroRd32', instead of 'Acrobat', so you'll need to use that instead.
