ok - that worked for an mp3 that was opening in notepad....

but how to i reassociate startup items? - like norton and sound drivers etc?

im not an expert, but pretty much any file types that are soppose to open with a certain program, choose that file and do that same thing. Do this with each type of file that isn't openign with the right program.


There is no answer!
