    Annoying notification

    Hi all,

    For some reason everytime I open up a file, whether it be a .jpeg file or an .avi file, I receive a very annoying pop-up notification stating 'you have new applications that can open this type of file'.

    Is there a way to disable this feature?

    Thanks a lot!
