RE: HELP exe files starts in Notepad
Hi,

You may want to set program defaults, using the start menu. Hit start->set
program defaults->default settings. These settings are set by your computer
manufacturer, to ensure windows runs the correct programs for your files.
Also, restarting your computer into Safe Mode, can solve many common problems
(Hitting F8 before windows boots and selecting "Safe Mode").

I hope this helps, and good luck.

Hi Johannes,

In Default Programs, make sure that all the programs listed are set
with "Set this program as default". See this tutorial for how.

For anything else that is not opening to the correct program, you can
use "Open With" and select the program to open the file with. See this
tutorial for how.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
