Hi Gurus: :)

I am running on Desktop, Win XP Professional, SP3 Ver:5.1.2600.5512

Till yesterday this option worked fine, today only i noticed that if I

Right click on any file type (e.g. MP3, DLL), Open with -> Choose Program.. Opens Notepad automatically :)

Does not allow me to choose a program as it used to before, I am using SP3 since two weeks now, but only today, this weird selection started happening. Is it that i am hacked??? :)

I did use nlite to generate an .iso for backup purposes, never used this .iso file. In this nlite I opted

Tweaks Section -> General Tab -> Explorer -> Associate additional file types with notepad (explanation - Open LST, CFG and NFO files by default).

I do not think it has any significance, but wanted to mention anything i did related to notepad association. :)

So any help in this regard is greatly appreciated by me and my kids and my grand kids.... :)

If the right click menu is not working correctly for you, try the fix here: Restore Right Click Properties

Scroll down to #203, right side.
