Jennifer Howell, the box is simply asking which proggie to use. IE opens most things. Some graphics (pictures, videos, etc.) use others. Suggest next time it happens you RIGHTCLICK to conjure the choices (if needed) and figure out which works by trying each in turn. Then rut a check mark in the 'always use' box. After you've done that a few times, the prompt should go away.

Jennifer Howell, had another thought (gas pain?) you might find useful. There're several sites which offer 'what open what' lists. Pick the one you like best.
what opens what - http://www.jozy.nl/extmenu.html - find out what opens what
