My Adobe updated the other day and I didn't pay attention to what it was doing and every microsoft word doc on my PC has been converted to .pdf.  How can I make this automatic converstion stop, and can I revert what the program did to all of my word docs? thx

Perhaps your operating system's association for .docx files was changed to Acrobat instead of Word.  If you right-click on a Word doc, and choose open with (if Windows) - and choose Word... does it open properly?  If so, you may want to do the right-click trick again, and select Always use this program (Word). Worth a try.
