Changing file options

By Ravenhawk ·
In Windows XP when I set the Tools-->Folder Options-->DOC Microsoft Word Document-->Advanced-->File Types-->Browse In Same Window (Clear the box) and save the settings Word documents are still opening in Internet Explorer instead of launching MS Word. Is this a known bug or am I missing something?

What tools menu are you checking?

From explorer go to Tools-->Folder Options-->
On the FIle Types tab find the DOC file type and see what it Opens with.

It's set to open in MS Word, and the file type properties has Browse in Same Window cleared. But it still does not open up MS Word when I attempt to view a document (or download) from IE. It just opens it in IE. I currently need to save the document and then open it up from my saved location.
