    Acrobat reader problem after upgrading to Win 8.1


    I'm on 64 bit and have 8.1 Pro installed. When I double click a file reader does not open. This wasn't the case before the upgrade. Tried multiple times but it just doesn't open. Went to Task Manager and noticed 8 instances of Acrobat Reader and shut them down all one by one. The files started opening again. Anybody experiencing this problem? After a while again I have to go back to the task manager and close reader which is cumbersome and irritating.
