My dad is having issues with downloading. A week or so ago he downloaded a file from a trusted website, it was a add on for his World of Warcraft game. When he downloaded this program he chose to have it open in the World of Warcraft game (which was his first mistake). He also clicked the download with this option always box. Now everything he downloads and opens from pictures to simple emails will cause the game to open up and now he is having game issues as well. My question is...how do you change your download options with the windows Vista 62'bit. I need a step by step lol. Thanks for any help.

Hey there Circemei,

Wow, that is a bummer. Usually though, when you change an extension to open with a certain program, it'll stay to that program. I mean, if he downloaded a (.exe) extension, only other extensions of that kind (other .exe's) would open up that way. The pictures, (.jpg, .bmp, .gif, etc..) or other things shouldn't have changed. Can I ask what extension the add on was?

Click Start>Default Programs and select the top choice (Set your default programs). Perhaps fiddle around there? Best of luck!
