  • Don't tripple post please, nobody needs that!

    Why don't you just select another program where you want to open the file with ?
    If you want to change the icon then you have to select a program in the open with .. and say that you always want to open that specific file with that specific program. Then  the icon will change.

  • I have tried the ordinary routes. Im not Vista ileterate

    This is what I have done already and its the same thing what you are suggesting. i choose a zip/rar/cbr file, right click to open the sub-menu. Them I choose the "Open with" selection. then a new smaller window pops up and shows you a 2 list of applications that are labeled under the "Recommended  Programs"  and " Other Programs". When you scroll through both list CDisplay the application is not in either list. You last option would be to browse for it on you hard drives. I did and found cdisplay.exe. I selected it and nothing happens it was not added onto the list like how other programs usually do.

    So my only chance is to ask you guys for a regedit solution or any other solution I dont about since I am a MCDSE for w2k so Vista is so new to me

    Please help me my fellow computer comrades
