One of the IT guys did an install on a Windows XP computer, but the install messed up. So I got called to fix the issue. Problem is that any batch flies (extension BAT) don't run. All I get is a dialog box with the Opens With.. and gives a list of programs. Any idea how I can get the batch files running again?

Joe, you are brilliant!! Worked. Seems the .BAT extention was set for a different program that is no longer installed on the computer. So I guess that's why it brought up the Open With dialog box.
