    I recently installed Acrobat Reader and Real Player but when I download their files the programs don't open automatically.

    RAM files just download and PDF files open inside Safari.

    Any help?

    if you open the downloaded file, does it open in the correct program?

    Im amazed that you were able to get PDF files to open in Safari because it will just download the file or ask me which program to open it with. I actually prefer to just download the file instead though.

    Select the .pdf or .ram and go to File > Get Info (or just Cmd-I). In the Info window there is an area called 'Open with...'. Make the app you want it to open in is selected there.

    BTW, why did you get Acrobat Reader? Preview does a much better job on OS X. As for Real Player, it's a necessary evil I guess.
