When Windows XP asks you how do you want to open a particular file that has no icon there are two choice. One is to open with a program that you choose and one that you let the internet choose. Well i choose the first option and i choose to open up a file called read31.tmp in windows media player. Now for all my other .tmp files open in windows media player. i want this to stop. i think tmp stands for tempory file but i want all my tmp files to be normal before i clicked on teh windows media player coice. please help.

but a bit more tricky than usual, as we don't normally wish to open *.tmp files with any program. From windows Explorer, select Tools, Folder Options. On the dialogue box that appears, select File Types. A list of file types will appear after a few seconds.

Scroll down this list until you find the TMP file type, which opens with media player. Select and press delete to remove this file type.
