Seems like an error in the way win98se is identifying hjt's default file extension, which is .txt
Adobe Acrobat 4.0 is outdated, which might contribute to the problem.
Uninstall Adobe. You can put it back later, the newest version.
if your win98 sees no adobe, maybe it'll respond correctly
Since malware does exist that targets hjt's process(s) more variables might be in play.
win98se should employ a file in a folder called Opens With
(at least I know winXP does)
I'm no authority on this, but it sounds like a system file or registry key has become corrupt.
No cause for panic, but it might delay your ability to correct that and other problems you might have.
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
