    Literal HTML appears in help window

    I am using Windows 7 and Directory Opus which apparently uses the Windows help scripts to display their help files, ie it is not their own programming. Recently, their help information has started coming up in literal HTML script and they tell me this is due to one or more corrupt Windows or IE files. I am unable to sort this out. Can anyone help me? The problem does not arise with any other software. and I have no other problems, at least with my computer. Here is a sample:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252" ?>

    - <html>
    - <head>
    <title>Welcome to Directory Opus</title>

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=Windows-1252" />

    <link href="../Theme/nav.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

    <link href="../Theme/lf.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

    <link href="../LinksExt/Directory%20Opus%209%20Manual.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

    - <script type="text/javascript">

    Check to see which program is associated with .html, .htm., .xml, .chm, etc. If it is not a browser ,e.g. IE, FF or Chrome, but rather Notepad or some other text based app then change them to use your default browser. This should fix the problem. YMMV.
