Recently my computer for some unknown reason is popping up a box that's asking to "Choose the program you want to use to open this file:" and it is doing it for everything I've tried runing today. The day it started doing it I ran a virus scan and only 1 thing came up in quarinteen (I use McAfee) but no virus's were detected. Today I have been trying to open McAfee back up but it keeps asking to choose a program. I have tried it by right clicking the bottom right corner McAfee symbol and opened it from my Program files but it still keeps asking me. I am using Windows Vista on the computer. Any help at all would be greatly appricated.
