Notes about the PDF file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The PDF file type is primarily associated with 'Acrobat' by Adobe Systems Incorporated.

Adobe Acrobat is a family of computer programs developed by Adobe Systems, designed to view, create, manipulate and manage files in Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF).

Some software in the family are commercial, and some are free. Adobe Reader (formerly Acrobat Reader) is available as a no-charge download from Adobe's Web site, and allows the viewing and printing of PDF files. Acrobat and Reader are widely used as a way to present information with a fixed layout similar to a paper publication.

The PDF format has become a standard for document transfer between computer architectures. A PDF file retains formatting for the file being transmitted. Free viewers are available at the Adobe website and other locations. Starting in 2007, PDF files sent as attachments started to show up as spam. When the PDF file is opened, the spammed ad is shown.
