How come my computer activates i-tunes when I open paintnet?


Recommended Posts

I downloaded paint.net just a few moments ago, and my i-tunes popped up, not thinking anything of it I x-ed it out and waited patiently for another window to pop up.

It didn't.

When I went to my downloads and tried to open the program from there, i-tunes once again popped up. All I can guess is that it somehow downloaded itself somewhere on it. I tried to re-download it, clicking "open with windows explorer" when asked. The same thing happened - what's going on and how can I download this successfully and get started.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

It will only let me open it with i-tunes - if I try to open it with windows explorer or firefox about 200 (not exaggerating) windows pop up. I tried right-clicking it but there's no "explore" or any other listed way to unzip it.

When you right-click - what are the options (not the sub-items of them)?

Okay, I've done that, but once again, there's no option to unzip it - I think it's because it downloaded itself onto i-tunes but I don't know what to download it to (that was the default for some weird reason) The only options are now "open, cut, copy, delete, and properties".

When you right-click on the file after you opened it in it's parent folder - is there an "Explore" option?

now that I look closely, it doesn't have "open folder location" just "open file location"

I did click that, went to the new window, right clicked and only got,

Play

Open file location

Open

Scan with AVG

Open With >>

Send to >>

Cut

Copy

Create shortcut

Delete

rename

properties

the options are:

Open with >

Share...

Send to >

Cut

Copy

Create Shortcut

Delete

Open folder location

Rename

Properties

If you move your mouse to the Open With > menu item, what are your options?

Do you have the option to Choose Program...?
