Every time I try to open a program this Run As dialog box pops up asking
"Which user account do you want to use to run this progam" How do I stop
this box from poping up?

More about : run box

Sounds like the exefile is not set as default.

That did not fix my problem. I can open the programs but I have to select
which user account to use to open the program. I used to be able to open
programs fine, but this thing just started poping up. Wish I could post a
picture of the box.

Anybody who can help me and would like to see the run as box I keep getting,
I can e-mail it to you.
