I downloaded a sound scheme from icq.com. After downloading, I got a prompt which said "Windows cannot open this file". Then it tells me it needs to know what program created it, and prompts to "use web to find appropriate program". From there I get an enormous list, and I do not know what to tell it. Any one have this problem and know how to correct it? Please keep in mind I am a computer idiot!

What's the extension of the file? Without knowing that, it would be almost impossible to tell you which program to use to open it.

As an aside, I would be *extremely* cautious about downloading and/or executing any programs downloaded from the internet, especially from sites such as ICQ, any IRC chat client, etc. That's a good way for your computer to catch a virus. :D Before opening it, make sure your anti-virus program has the latest definitions installed, and run a scan on that particular file, if not your entire system.

Good luck!
