If you right click on an icon, and the application is "unknown" to the OS, (i.e. file.doc is unknown unless you have a Microsoft Word), then you will get the open with... option.  You would need to know what kind of file it is, as opening that file.doc with real player will not work.  If this is a particular file or files, post the full file extensions, (doc, exe, wav,...) and I'll tell you what to use to open it.

Alot of these files are specific examples, and it would be hard to compile a list for all of them, however, i would be willing to help you with any file you want, just email me at ben82584@hotmail.com and tell me the file name (including ending) and i will tell you which program, just accept this answer, and start emailing me the file names.

Hey Ben,
what's the deal?  You desperate for points or something?  Don't you know that you post as a comment until the postee asks you to repost as an answer.  And if you read the question, the asker wanted a site for information, and an explanation of how to use it, not an email address of someone.  Remember, this site keeps email addresses confidential for the reason that not everybody wants you to know their email address.
