I have the same issue but I made the problem worse. I followed some guy on a Youtube its making the application set to default but I followed also whereas you will remove the desktop and all apps then I followed all he do etc. Then the last step is to get back the desktop and applications. I followed the last step then clicked ok but It runs the Adobe Reader always and couldn’t get back my desktop and also when I open regeditor it opens the Adobe Reader.
