Hi and welcome to the forums!
Congrats! I've never seen that before. Were the files on the BB?

I noticed that some of my text type files have turned to nero media files, green circles with a white arrow in them. I was trying to create a text file with a program and every time i create a new file it gives me the nero media (audio) file. I have a ten year old son who is on the cpu alot, could he have changed a setting or something? I'm confused. thanks for your time. ROB You have associated the files with NERO somehow.
It sounds like the file type association was reassigned to Nero. This is a fairly easy thing to have happen as many times all it takes is to install a program and that program will reassign the association automatically. The easiest way to correct this is to setup an automatic association. The only problem with this is that automatic associations are not easy to manually remove or reassign once they have been done. Also, it will still be possible for the installations to reassign the association again.
Since it is so difficult to remove the automatic association manually, you should make sure that you want this type of file to be a text file for good. It will not mess up any programs that you have installed that depend of these types of files. File associations are only relevant when the user tries to open them, programs already know how to open them.
If you would like to add an automatic association for this file type, then hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys and right-click on one of the files you are trying to reassign. Select the "Open With" option (if the "Open With" option is a submenu, then select the "Choose Program..." option from that submenu). If you get a pop up that tells you that Windows cannot open this file and then gives you to options to select from, choose the "Select the program from a list" option. You should now be in an "Open With" dialog box. Scroll down the list of Programs to "Wordpad" or "Notepad" (I prefer Wordpad, but either one should work). Check the checkbox labeled "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and then click the OK button. You should now be able to double-click on the file and have it open up in either WordPad or NotePad, depending on which one you chose.
Not a blackberry problem at all.
Please resolve the post, OK.

Some software, such as anti-malware software (e.g. AVG 8.x), updates itself automatically in the background without you seeing any messages about that - sometimes it does that while intitially loading Windows before the desktop screen appears, or shortly after it appears.
The only mentions I can find of many icons having a green circle with a white arrow is related to you using Firefox, and the Firebug feature in it. That green circle with a white arrow indicates the web site or file has been checked and has been found to be safe to use. A red circle with an X in it indicates whatever it is has been found to be NOT safe to use.
Do you use any of these programs?
