Adobe Reader and Win 7 desktop icons

Some users have reported that when downloading Adobe Reader 9.3, all the desktop icons are changed to PDFs and Win 7 will try to open them as PDFs.  When Adobe Reader is unistalled the icons revert to normal.

We have been unable to establish why and under what circumstances this occur, but the best fix seems to be to repair the file association with f ex File Association Fixes for Win 7 which can be downloaded here.

However, if you have experienced the above problem, please post as much information as possible as comments below, so we can better identify the cause of this problem.
