hi, every time i want to open a file which has been downloaded i get the following message "to open this file windows needs to know what program created it " it then gives the option of automatically going on line to select program for you, or it gives you the option of manually selecting from list below?? help thank you

this normally means that you havn't got software/program to open that type of file!

what type of file are you downloading?

a xls file!!!

xls - MSExcel - do you have it installed?

If not, you can get a viewer for it from Microsoft.
