bug with external editor

I’m on version 10.6.8 of MAC OS X leopard. I’m trying to use a different program to open PDF files from my scrivener window using the external editor icon. Each time I try to change the editor I get the following error message. There was a problem opening the file in the program “Adobe Digital Editions 2.0”. Please try opening the file in a different program, or ensure that Adobe Digital Editions 2.0 is installed properly. This happens with any of relevant applications I choose ie Adobe Reader.

Thanks for any and all help

I’m no expert, but the first thing I would try if I were in your position would be to run disk utilities and repair permissions.
