I'm using Win XP home edition. When i go on the internet and try to open a file, usually an audio file in my case, a message appears with the error: invalid menu handle. I used to be able to open this files before, but as of recently i can't. I am a new member and would really appreciate any help/ advice so this problem is fixed. Many thanks.

I had the same symptom. I fixed mine by going to Control Panel/Folder Options/File Types and associating PDF files with the correct viewer.

I am running WXP SP2

Audio files will not be PDF files, but the idea is valid.

Associate audio files (MP3s, wavs, etc) with the correct sound device such as Windows Media Player, Real Player, etc.

This tip worked for me. In Control Panel, use Folder Optiions. I "Associated" my *.pls type files with WinAmp, and the problem was solved. I did not find this useful advice elsewhere.
