Hi. Something happened on my computer, running XP, when I double click to open a file or a doc the search program opens. When I right click the 'open' command is not longer the top option, search is, how do I change it back to open?

Right-click the file and choose Open With. Choose the program you want to open the file and make sure that the box to open it always with that program is checked. If Open With is absent, try Shift+Right-click.

If that is not present, use FileTypesMan to change the file associations.
