When I right click on a file, any file to open I get the "Open With" drop down menu of which the last option is "Choose Program"

When I click on this "Choose Program" it does not have a drop down menu anymore. It has gone missing.

Instead I get this message :: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel.

How do I get this "Choose Program" dialog box or drop down menu back.

I am using Window XP3

Its me again.

I believe the original "Open With" drop menu has the recommended programs, a section for other programs and something else which i cannot recall.

I need the Choose Program option to change the application to always open certain files. ie using another media player to open mp3.
