Hi,
When I download a file now it downloas my file as if it were a Broderbund poster from Print Shop. It now try's to open everything in Print Shop. I noticed this when I was installing IE-SPY ADs for my computer. I had no option of changing it and could not change it when I right clicked the file and chose "Open With". Any advice?

If you accidentally associate a particular file
extension with the wrong application, don't try to fix
it from within Windows Explorer's File types dialog
box--there's no way to remove a single
extension from a registered file type without deleting
the entire entry and starting over. Instead,
you can click on the Start button, launch the Run
dialog box then type winfile and press
[Enter]. Once File Manager opens, pull down the File
menu and select the Associate
Command. When the Associate dialog box appears,
type the extension that you want to get rid
of in the Files with Extension text box. When you do,
you'll see the errant file association
appear in the Associate With text box. To remove the
file association, scroll to the top of the list
of file types, select (None), and then click OK.

I went where you went to Derek, but Windows could not find the file.I went to the website and tryed downloading it. For some reason it still could do nothing to the file. :( You guys got any other ideas. Oh yes, I have tryed right clicking the file and going to open with, but still doesn't work. :(
