the voice of god ,how are you ,right i followed that piece of advice and the setting the default values were all correct and the same ,but it still wont open it it keeps giving me the choice of what to open it with,this has me stumpe di went into the current user on another page i was looking at and it told me to go into the exe file there ,and i coulndt find it so iwas thinking maybe one of the virus progams has taken the file out at some point ,but everything to do with the values on that page you put up was all there so ,im still no further and a bit more confused ,eh why it always happen to me eh ? i ask myself ,so sorry for puting the grief on you . but sure if you dont know i`ll find it out some how thanks any way folks you been brilliant in the past ,also how do you change the serial key in sp2 without reinstall and reg edit like i think a program would be best where i can put the new one in cause i have the validation tool in a pc and it told me the code is a pirate so i bought another but i dont want to reinstall ,but thats another thing ,yea the exe file ,i have never come across it before !!!!!!!!
