My pleasure to help you.

This seems to be a file association issue.

I trust you have access to Internet.

Download and run this app, it should do a world of good, it was created by an expert and long time contributor nicknamed Xplode:

If you don't have access to Internet your can use another computer to put it on a pen drive.

Let me know
ok thanks

so when i download this what exactly do or what does the program do?
