Every time I trie to bring up a file or Icon, a screen comes up saying, " Choose the program you want to use to open this file."

original title:From Marvin Bush.

Dear Ladies or Gentalmen,  I ended up in an area when I tried to delete a game.  Every time I trie to bring up a file or Icon, a screen comes up saying, " Choose the program you want to use to open this file." A lot of my files are inside this screen also. I would X it out, but it comes back every time I trie to open a file or turn on the computer.  I hope you all can help. Thank you.

Hi Marvin Bush,
1. Have you uninstalled the game successfully?
2. Which game are you talking about?
3. When you say ‘file or Icon’, what exactly are you referring to?
4. Is it an issue when opening all files and icons or particular ones?

Please explain the issue in brief so we can assist your further.

However, this seems to be a File association issue to me. You may refer the below link to know more on how to associate a file:

Hope this helps.
