Can anybody help me?
When I right click on a file in Windows Explorer and select Open With - Choose Program the list to chose from no longer appears.

The cursor changes to an egg timer for a while and the hard drive works at something but no matter how long I wait the list doesn't appear.

Ctrl,Alt,Delete shows that RUNDLL32 has started and is running.

I'm using Windows ME and I've got all the latest updates from Microsoft.

I don't use this feature very often so I can't say how long it's been since it worked.

When you want to use the feature, try this way first click the file you want to open then hold the shift key while you right click the file.

It's one of the 'features' of ME that MS know about, but don't seem able / willing to fox - see click here

See if there is any fluff under the mouse.

Fluff can affect an egg timer in funny ways.

I am mystified by that statement<:-0

Thanks woodchip.
Holding down the shift key worked.

Sorry, I received an email from this girl who was new in town, did I want to see her picture? After that my glasses steamed up. Think I may be on the wrong site.
