In re: mykitty2 and Josh Lowe (Mar.26, and 27, '01) I have that problem too, usually pops up on my desktop as soon as I start the computer. When I click on an item, I'll use ELNhelp for example, I get a message box, saying, "Windows cannot find ELNhelp.exe"
, click OK and another box pops up that 'This program is needed for opening files_______', so on.I have 'several' of them, just alike, I can delete those, but I can't delete the one that comes up when I start my computer!! I know it is 'awhile after the fact' but I just found this, and could really use the help. Thank You--jj

In Win9x
In Explorer, choose a file, and click once to select it. Then hold Shift and click right, choose Open With. Then scroll down and choose the program you want to open that file type with. Click OK.

WinXP
In Explorer, right click the file, and choose Open with, then scroll to the program you want. Click OK.
