Whenever I try to download and open a new program, the computer asks me to choose a program to open it with.


Hi golfnutz
Usually a file is opened by a program that specifically handles that kind of file, for example MS word opens (amongst others) .doc files and .rtf files MS Excel opens .xls and .xlsx files.
A downloaded program would normally need to be installed before you can use it, if the program files are in a compressed format then they will need to be extracted before they can be installed.
Try right clicking on the files and if the menu that opens includes the option to extract all then select that.
You should be able to tell what sort of file you are trying to open by looking at the file extension, program files usually end with the extension .exe.

    Try right clicking on the item you wish to open. This should give you an option to "Open with" in the open with menu you will see a list of programs that can open the file you right clicked on. If your using Vista at the bottom of this on your open with menu with be a "Choose Default Program" option where you can set which program you want to use to open that type of file. If your using XP you will get a box with a list of programs and a check box if you want to make the program you select the default one.

    I hope this helps,
