Wow, I didnt know thats how you do it. I always had to delete the File Type just to open a file with another program. As for games im not sure what you would open them with. They dont open when you first install them?

Hey, it all depends on there ending eg. *.exe.*.rar,*.zip,*.iso. Now if you have downloaded the games i suspect you were donwloading them from a warez server, if that is the case then you have probally downloaded them in a *.iso format. An *.iso file is an image file for burners, meaning to run the game you have to burn the game to a blank disk and then run it from the disk for the game to be in an exe format. If you have downloaded them in a .exe format windows will automatically know what file it is and you will never get a box asking what program to run it in. For *.rar or *.zip use a program called WinRAR (google the term "WinRAR" to fiind a download page) to open them. However it could be in a different format so for us to help you you need to tell us what format it is in.
