Running Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2007..  When I click on links in a Word file that point to PDF files, I want the PDF to open in Acrobat, not in Reader.  

I already have Acrobat X set as the default program to open PDF's.  But for some reason, when I click on the the links in Word the PDF's open in Reader.  How can I achieve this without uninstalling Reader?
