    When I right click/open with, and try to assign the correct program to open something, the list is apparently full and won't let me add another one. When I browsed for the program and double clicked it, it wasn't added and instead some entirely different program is set to open the file. (utorrent is set to open .ecm files WTF?) How can I find where this list is so I can delete it, or at least make it bigger?

    Hm, could you screenshot the "open with" window?

    I'm guessing you went over to a random rom site and are trying to convert them into playable isos?

    What OS do you have? Did you try using the "Default Programs" in your Control Panel? If you don't end up figuring it out, you could try uninstalling one of the programs on the list and then try again. If it is so full, I doubt you use every program on the list.

    Never mind. My friend Mr. Google was kind enough to tell me about Default Programs Editor, which does what Microsoft don't. Stupid Microsoft...

    Uhm... Seriously?

    Microsoft included that as part of Windows.

    RTFM before you hate, bro.
