How to associate files (easy question)?
I want to associate my .rar files with winrar. I just upgraded and now it's not associating. How do I do this?

Easiest way:

1) Find a .rar file.

2) Hold the Shift key down and right-click on the file.

3) Click on "Open with..."

4) Find and select winrar. Check the box that says "Always use this program..."

5) Click on OK.

OK that worked. One more thing. How do I make it change from the "What the hell do I use to open this?" icon to the "Oh, it's a .rar file, let's use winrar" stack of books icon?

Edit: Oh, and Thank You :)
