How do I get rid of 'Choose the program you want to use to open this file?

By mstors ·
How do I get rid of this annoying popup in Windows 7? Also, I get another popup when I try to open some files that says FIND or SAVE instead of the usual OPEN or SAVE. There are files I just want to read, not save. BTW this just started happening recently. I've tried everything I know to no avail.

Thanks. Joanie

after choosing the correct program.

It sound like file associations were broken. Have you installed or uninstalled anything immediately before this started happening?

Find or Save? It may be system file associations are broken as well. You might try a system restore to some time just before the problem began.
