Who can help me with this problem?
I downloaded the Analog Web site traffic analyzer and unzipped it with the Unzip Wizard. I’m a Windows 98 user.

As I was trying to open it I came across this dreaded “Open with…” window and instead of clicking Cancel, I gave it a try with Adobe as the program to open. But the screen told me this is not possible.

Then I read the “Read Me” text and was instructed to use Notepad to open.

Trouble is that my machine keeps showing Adobe as program to open and I can’t get back to that “Open with…” window, press Cancel and use Notepad.

What is the solution to this problem?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Dieter Schoop, Bahamas,

First, click once on the file you want to open. It should now be high-lighted. Then, press and hold the SHIFT key while you right-click on the file. (sounds complicated in words, but not too hard.)

In the options, you will find a "open with..." selection. Choose that. That will give you the open with window. Then, scroll down to notepad, click it once, then check the "always use this program" box, and hit OK. That should get you going.
