Does this happen with one icon only? If it's only one icon is this icon for a application that has been installed or is it a icon to make an installation?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

If you open a explorer window you can click tools then folder options. This will provide you with a new bow with File Types as one of the tabs at the top. Click that and find the file extension you wish to change. Click opens with and select the program you wish to associate that file type with.

That should change the file associations for you. I hope this helps.

Your issue is a File Assciation problem as referenced by the previous post.

You will want to work through the Folder Options applet, File Types tab to change the association of the file type extension that is being affected by the pop-up message.

| Start >> My Computer >> Tools >> Folder Options >> File Type tab |

Once you access the File Type tab, you will be able to select any of the file extensions listed and you can select the default program to be associated with that file. That should prevent further pop-ups for any extension.
