I'm not sure if mac's are located in the same place as windows, but open "Explore" - go to "File Types", in your folder options, and locate the file extension - select change - locate your PDF - point it Abode Reader.

For future reference you can also do the following:

Method #1:
1) right-click the file
2) "open with"
3) "choose default program"

This also works with pictures or videos.

Method #2:
1) Start Menu
2) Default Programs

*You may need to add the "Default Programs" link by right-clicking->Properties from your Start Menu.

The above is for Windows 7. It will be the same or similar for XP/Vista.
