that's normal. You probably have the option to show the file extensions. If you don't want to show it, go to your folder options and check the hide extensions for known file types.

Dear Numb Remxed,

First of all i would like to thank for ur response. But the problem i specified is not normal. Since word and excel douments change their file type(i.e application type) when i double click and also their apearance is that of directory(yellow folder appearance) instead of word and excel icon.
sincerly,

Abinet A.

hm.. so you're saying that when you double click on the icons to open them up, they automatically change their file types?

Can you post a screenshot up?

Also, follow my previous directions to find out the file extensions and post that up.

Is the problem only limited to Word and Excel documents?
