I was changing the program association on .pdf in Programs "Make a file type always open in a specific program"

I was changing the program association on .pdf in Programs "Make a file type always open in a specific program" and mistakenly changed the Current Default to Windows Contacts instead of Adobe Reader 9.3. Now I can't change back using Change select close as instructed. How can I fix this. I have removed Adobe and reinstalled, rebooted ect.

Hi,

The program association might have been changed for the application. You may try setting the program as default that windows uses when you try opening a particular type of file.

Change which programs Windows uses by default

Additional Information:
Change the program that opens a type of file
