Why are some filetypes missing from WinXP options menu? .pdf

Hey all - I can't find this anywhere else on the web, so here goes. Trying to get normal file-type icons back, I'm in the
My Computer >Tools >Folder Options > File Types tab. That's where the list of ALL extensions & file types is supposed to show up for you to pick the icon & default opener.
This list is notably missing the PDF file extension. It has a ton of other (useless) Adobe acrobat extensions, including .PDFXML, but not the .PDF file type. So I can't do anything to change options for that type.
This is completely batty as I hate the PDF zoo already, but I need to use them for work daily. Can ANYONE help?
