    if none of the above work use a batch file in the directory

    eg "del *.dat" <---*make sure the "*" is the filename

    yet again:

    1. Open up regedit
    2. Goto HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT&#092;SystemFileAssociations&#092;.avi&#092;shellex&#092;PropertyHandler
    3. Delete the "Default" value which should be "{87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}&#092;InProcServer32"
