PDF Architect removal

Try Control Panel -> Programs -> Standard programs -> Configure standard programs 

(it might be called slightly different, I have a Dutch version of Windows)

Go over to Adobe reader and select the "Select what standard opens this program" and tick .pdf.

That fixed it. Thanks

I have a program called PDF Architect that I want removed from my computer. I removed it by uninstalling it via Control Panel/Remove programs, but when I try to look at a PDF using Adobe Reader, it opens up in PDF Architect even though that program is presumably uninstalled. How do I completely get rid of this unwanted program?

Possibly there's an uninstaller?

Or can you uninstall Adobe reader too and reinstall Adobe reader?

Maybe PDF Architect infected Adobe reader or something? :P

It has an uninstaller, which I used to uninstall it. The problem is that it will still open pdf files in PDF Architect. Adobe Reader never even opens up. I think the file association is messed up and PDF Architect is still somehow on the system.

So it is not there in Control Panel -> Programs anymore?

And have you tried right clicking the .pdf and opening it with Adobe Reader or even with Google Chrome?

Yes, it's gone from installed programs in Control Panel. I can right click and open it using Open With and it opens in Adobe Reader. If I open a pdf while in Outlook 365, there is no Open With, and it opens with PDF Architect.

Go to your Appdata (%appdata%) in the start menu, go look through the folders finding Adobe and removing all traces of the Adobe Architect? Also, you could go into "regedit.exe" and remove any traces from there?
