Computer Wants to Download .PDF Files as .ASPX Files

A computer at one of my clients has a strange issue.  When somebody clicks on a link to download a PDF file in a web browser, the download comes up as an .aspx file type. It only happens on this one computer and occurs in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. No other computers in the office have this issue.

Here are the computer details:
Windows XP with SP2
2.4 Ghz Pentium 4
768MB of RAM
Internet Explorer 7
Firefox 3.6.2
Adobe Acrobat Reader 9

Any ideas?

Don't ask me why I didn't think of that before submitting. I blame Friday.

I have uninstalled Adobe Reader 9.2 via RevoUninstaller and have downloaded and installed 9.3. That has resolved the issue.
