DAT file icon anomoly

  Tazfan 22:25 11 Jun 03

Hi people.
For some reason, the Icons for mt DAT files have changed to IrfanView Icons. I have tried to do a system restore, but it wont work.
What may have caused the icons to change, and how would I go about getting tham back to how they were?

As always, thank you in advance for your help, T:-)

Click on one to hightlight it; the right click on it and choose "open with". Follow the options and tick the "always open this with" when you choose what to open the file with - for what it's worth, I use a text editor to open them just to see what info is in some of them.

I don't know how it happened - any number of things could cause it.
