Windows 7: File association

File association

Is there a way to correct file association problems. I've used the 'default programs' feature but it doesn't seem to solve my problem.
Also can anyone tell me what "opendlg" means?

I want to know what is "opendlg" in the options menu in my screenshot? it doesn't seem to do anything. the file i'm trying to open has aspx as the extension.

You're welcome Enduser. "opendlg" must be an addition to the context menu added when some program was installed that is able to open that file type. I do not have it by default when I right click on a .aspx file.
