heh don't undetstand what you trying to say.

When i open msn i get the box which says 'open with' and a list of 'recommended programs' and 'other programs' and underneath it, is the browse button. Underneath that, it says 'If the program you want is not in the list or on your computer, you can look for the appropriate program on the web.

I use the browse button but i have to look for that program and it takes ages. I need a way to stop this box from coming up.

About Alert Pay, that has nothing to do with you. They're getting ddosed and the sites offline for the meantime. Don't worry about what it means.

As for your exe problemo.

Try:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.


2. Type "command.com" , and then press Enter. (A DOS window opens.)


3. Type the following:

"cd\"

"cd \windows"

Press Enter after typing each one.

4. Type copy "regedit.exe regedit.com" and then press Enter.

5. Type "start regedit.com" and then press Enter.

6. Navigate to and select the key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command

7. In the right pane, double-click the (Default) value.

8. Delete the current value data, and then type:

"%1" %*

Tip: Type the characters: quote-percent-one-quote-space-percent-asterisk.

9. Close Regedit utility.


Note: If you are using Windows XP and you enable "System Restore" , you need to
disable "System Restore" in "Safe Mode" before using the instructions above.
