Pdf file association in win 7 x64

I am having trouble setting the default app. to open pdf files in windows 7. Currently running windows 7 pro 64. When I try to open pdf's it has me look for an associated program. I can then manually set it to open with either foxit or adobe, but clicking to set the program as the default doesn't do anything. i also tried manually changing the program in the control panel, but pdf is not listed as an extension. Any thoughts?
