    Every time I try to open a PDF file Live Type tries to open it. I have to save the file to the desktop and open it. Also, all pdf files have the Live type icon next to them. Help.

If you want to go the shotgun approach you can pull the com.apple.LaunchServices.plist in ~/Library/Preferences but other filetypes will be affected. You can also look in LiveType's preferences to see if you can change the file associations it has...
