Maybe this will help..
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... =windows-7
Windows needs an "association" with files and the program used for their specific use.. such as CDA, MP3, gif, jpg, rtf, txt.
A lot of feature programs cannot be removed or disabled from Windows.
Most software programming that is intended to replace a Windows program does an automatic Registry edit to reflect the preference over the default program. Some have a user menu to select what files to associate or not associate with.

in your case what OS are you running in terms of windows?

why don't you try out types its a great program that is is more or less a work in progress ^_^..



That link might help me in a different sense... I couldn't recall how or where I disabled the crappy Windows built in search functionality on my Windows 7 laptop when i set it up.... I found I like Agent Ransack for searching it like XP but much better... I might have disabled the file indexing too.... ?_?

Will check for you when in the office again, don't have a windows 7 machine at hand here. I have been playing around with Agent Ransack and FTA's before, should be able to give you some pointers or the registry keys that need to be changed.

My 'daily driver' is still using Win XP Pro. Secondary or reserve system is Win XP Home.
My semi-dedicated F@H rig is running Win 7. Yes, will have to upgrade #1 and #2 someday.. when XP is "over the cliff".
One of my favorite programs is Total Commander from www.ghisler.com/ which is an excellent file manager/editor/viewer. Very easy to set associations with almost any file type. But leave the OS critical files alone.. they are tagged with attributes such as (s) for system, (h) for hidden or (r) for read only. (a) is for archive, common for many non-critical files.
