"This File does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."

I get these messages when I try to update Winzip and when I try to open profiles on Yahoo Messenger 8. I looked at the Folder Options in Control Panel and I couldn't find anything to associate any files with a "Winzip update" and to browse Yahoo messenger "profiles". I am not sure how to do this. Can anyone help me?

-- Open Explorer (the file viewer).

-- Tools > Folders Options.

-- Click the File Types tab.

-- Select the file type you are trying to open.

-- Click "Change..."

Yeah I know about that but what if you access this option internally? If I were to open Yahoo, I'd know what program to associate it with if it's a Winzip file, I know to associate it with Winzip. But what about an internal option like trying to view a profile on yahoo in turn opening up mozilla firefox/internet explorer? Same with Winzip, if you were trying to update Winzip and you use the "check for updates" option in the toolbar which is supposed to open up mozilla/IE, but opens in a message alert saying to create an association with a program, how do I do this?
