File icon associations

Hello there. Ive got a little annoying niggle to do with the file icons for my movie and music files.

I've installed PowerDVD XP so that any DVD or Video file will be played on it. Everything opens and works fine, its just that the icons for the video files haven't changed and are still showing the windows media player icon. I would like to change the icons to show powerDVD.

I've tried right clicking and selecting 'Open with...' and it works, but it doesnt change the file icon. Hope you understand what I mean??

Is there a manual way of configuring the change?

Now click Choose programme

Now choose the programme and then tick the box that says "Always use the selected programme to open this kind of file"

Click ok and thats it

Hi m8.

I that that method but although the files open with the right programs, the icon itself doesnt change for some reason.
