Thread: Explorer DAMN

    Exclamation Explorer DAMN


    I tried to play with my registry.
    Now what happened, i download a .exe file, and it opens with Internet explorer, when double clicking it. It's file association seems to have changed. When i do a "open with..", it doesnt show explorer in the list. What do i associate the file with to make it work ?

    Its file association should be [EXECUTABLE]
    That is for files with the EXE extension.

    Start->Settings->Folder Options->File Types
    under Registered File Types, look for "Application".
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    What better way to learn the windows registry? Next time you will backup your registry files first eh? You did not mention the version of windows your using, but, I will reccomend a fantastic reference manual. It is titled The Windows 98 Registry A Survival Guide for Users by John Woram This book was originally published for use with Win95 and has been revised to include the newer 98 hkeys, etc. I have not seen it yet, but he was working on a similar publication for Win NT based OSs too. I have referenced this book many times in the past and many portions of it pertain to all versions of windows.
    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?
