What's the file extension? That's the key.

Like:

homer.jpg
homer.swf
homer.doc

Each one corresponds to the appropriate program.

I have 8 programs that won't work and say "they do not have a program association with it for performing this action". They say to "create an association in the folder options control panel".


Windows uses "associations" as part of its object-oriented interface.

For example, after installing Adobe Reader, there will be an "association" created, such that everytime that you double-click on a 'PDF' file, then Windows will launch Adobe Reader.

Similarly, '.doc' files will be associated with Microsoft Word,
and '.xls' files will be associated with Microsoft Excel.

> create an association in the folder options control panel

That's the correct way to "add" or "delete" a specific association.

It's strange that you don't have an association already defined;
it could be the result of a computer-virus, namely, one that has deleted that association.

When I open an attachment-pdf for instance. or any attachment for that matter. The windows media player opens, with an error message saying it cannot open this type file. is this an adobe reader problem


Sounds like your files are not assigned to the correct program.

Open Windows Explorer and find a pdf file.

Right click on it and choose Open With...

Select Adobe Reader and check the box at the bottom that says:

Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.

Click OK.

All pdf files should then open in Adobe.

You can do the same with any other type of file by choosing the program you want to open it with.

Thanks for using Fixya.

When I try to forward an e-mail and access my address book, the screen exits. The same thing is happening when I try to click on links on web pages.


Sounds like you could possibly have a virus. Try to boot in safe mode and click on a link in a webpage see what happens. If it works in safe mode check what is starting in msconfig and disable the non-windows apps then try normal mode this would indicate that there is a program causing this issue. You can also check file associations with URLs, open any folder>tools>folder Options>file types check that URL is set to open with IE.

Do you get a dialog box saying that the file can't be opened? and down the bottom is a button with which you can select a program to open the file with?

If yes, click on this - Acrobat may not be listed (hence the problem). There should be a Browse button, click on this an work youur way to C:\Programs\Adobe\Acrobat (or some such naming) enter the Acrobat folder and find the Acrobat EXE file - click on this and say yes to all the prompts on your way out. This will now associate Acrobat with PDF files.

Hope this works.
