It may seem weird but I have exactly the same problem. My computer is configured so graphics files with extensions such as jpg, gif open with a program called Cshow. Also, files with the txt extension are opened with the program uuedit. Recnetly Win98se is returning a message, when I attemp to open such files, that it cannot open the files becasue it cannot find the file blank.exe. If I run cshow or uuendit first and then use their open command on the files in question they open with no problem. It appears something has inferferred with the file association mechanism. I put an empty file named blank.exe in the root directory. Now windows gives the message that it is not a win32 application. any ideas?
