    I have accidently changed a file extension on a downloaded file to be a zip
    file. it should he a file which needs to be joined therefore its extension
    should be "mp3.0". the properties box for some of the files shows that
    it should open with " windows shell common dll". I tried to re-download the
    file to replace it but it has the same association as the original (now .zip)
