Open explorer, not internet explorer, click on tools, folder options & file types. Change each file to use the program of your choice.

Also uninstall Acrobat - Windows 8 should use its own 'Reader' by default or you can install something else like 'Foxit' and just make sure that the box saying 'use Foxit for pdfs' is ticked during installation.

For browsers, in the settings of both IE and Chrome, there's an option to select whether to open in the main UI or the desktop.
