Whenever I try to open something through any program, whether it's Winamp or Notepad, files are automatically sorted by the date they were last modified, instead of alphabetically. I can right click in the area and choose to sort it by name but it automatically goes back to being sorted by last modified next time I try to open a file. However, when in Explorer all my folder view settings are remembered, and I have that option ticked under Folder Options.

Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

THFS, try this. In the Open/Save dialog box, select detail view. Now click on the 'Name' box. The order should reverse. Now, hold the Ctrl key and click the X in the upper right corner.

It worked! Thanks very much, I've never heard of anything like that before but it did the trick perfectly.
