select the extension and then select the "Change program" buttom and browes to the program that you want to ALWAYS use. Then OK yourself out.

set association control panel
click start, all programs, default, then click on associate a file type or protocol with a program-this is the set association control panel and the extensions are in the box- click the extension you need, then click the change programs button and select the program you want to open it

Here it is 5/18/08...and this information is still helpful to me. Worked Great. Simple instructions, not too wordy.

Unhappy RAM and Video Driver conflicts
I recently tried to upgrade from 4G DIMM DDR2 240 pin RAM by switching out my 4 1G sticks with 4 2G RAM. I installed 2 brands (first attempt -GB & second attempt Kingston) and in both instances my ATI video drivers go missing and Vista reports video scores of 1, where in the past the score was 5.9. I eventually re-formatted and re-installed Vista however after updating the ATI drivers and re-booting, the drivers had gone south again! Has anyone seen anything similiar or am I missing some obvious conflict?

My system is composed of: Intel D975XBX2 motherboard, Intel Quad core Q6700 CPU, ATI RAdeon HD3870 512MB Video.

*** all drivers/updates/patches & BIOS are latest available***

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have followed this action exactly and still I am reciving a message saying the file does not have a programme associated with it and to create an association in the set associations control panel. If I save the attachment to a file, then I can open it and I can open all other attachments just not pdf ones directly from an email!

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Thanks for that, it looked good as explained the exact problem I'm having but still didn't work! :-( I'm going to try the option for repairing microsoft word next, see if that helps! Thanks all the same!
