file associations

  cheeky 16:27 26 May 2003

HI anyone know how I can get my .bin files back to normal?

After installing "stuffit" they are now associated with it. If I try to extract them I get (LHA) not installed from both winzip and stuffit.
This is a problem as I need to extract them to disk to flash my bios

what windows are you using?

if you right click a file and select open with, you can then select the program you want to open the file with, if you check the "always use this program to open this type of file" you can re-establish your lost association. (although you must be logged on with administrator rights if you are using windows XP)
