How to default adobe reader to open through internet explorer instead of adobe standard

I have an XP system that has adobe standard 6.0 and adobe reader 9.0 installed.  When opening a PDF through internet explorer 7, adobe standard opens separately to display the pdf.  How do I change this so adobe reader opens instead?

Hi

First go to Standard and Edit|preferences and uncheck the open PDF in Browser, go to the same pref option in Reader and check the box.

Make sure that the PDF file association points to Adobe Reader instead of Standard.

to Control Panel => Folder Options. The third tab give you File types. Scroll down to PDF and see what it says in 'Opens with' and 'Change' it if needed.
