Windows 7 x64 finally!

Hi zany, you are trying to open a file for which Windows doesn't know what to use. Can you give more details about how it happens? Is it the autorun when you insert the disk? You say it is when you try to use the CD-RW the second time, what have you used to burn the CD?

And welcome to the forums
