Does anyone know how to stop Outlook 2013 from converting PDF files to Word automatically?  I'm not sure what was done to make this happen but I am not able to stop this behavior.  I been searching but no concrete answer.  I already tried to go to default programs.

It sounds as if PDF files became associated with Word. To fix that, right-click on any PDF file in Windows Explorer (or whatever file manager you use), then left-click Open With and then left-click Choose Default Program. Pick the program that you want to open PDF files, such as Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, PDF-XChange Editor, or whatever PDF reader/viewer that you have on the system that you'd like to own the PDF file type. Regards, Joe
