" Open With " troubles.

I'm having a really odd issue - when you right click on a file, go to the open with box, and if the program name isn't present, you can go to " choose program " and pick whatever you want to open the file with. Then usually the program is added to the " open with " box.

I upgraded photoshop 6.0 and installed CS2. Prior, the open with - photoshop was present. now the only option is ImageReadyCS2; no matter how many times I select Photoshop as my program of choice it will not register into that " open with list.' In fact it doesn't open at all when trying to start it that way, the only whole exception to this is PSD files. Help, please? It's like it didn't register somewhere in windows or something :eek:

Have a look here>>

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications.

Select the associated sub-key, if 'NoOpenWith' is listed, delete it.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
