The new browser was automatically downloaded to my computer without my permission. I had just Avast antivirus installed. Now the Avast Secure browser has hijacked my PDF file icons ( they now have the Avast browser icon) and the worse part is I can't double click to open the pdf files. I am asked to choose a program to open them. How do I fix it? I want my PDF icons back.

Can you not use the 'Open With' right click option in Windows Explorer (image1), select the Open With Option, then Choose Program...

From the next screen (image2), select your PDF viewer and check the 'Always use the selected to open this kind of file.'

Thanks DavidR. I really appreciate your help. I got my PDF icons back and double clicking them will open them.  :)
