Windows 10: File association alert

    File association alert

    I know some don't like WinPatrol, but I've had the paid version for years and I find it useful. So, that being said ...

    I never know for sure what to do when I get these file association alerts. (screenshot)

    I have both Windows Live Mail and Thunderbird. TBird is my default program and what I use all the time, but I have everything synced and I keep WLM too.

    For this alert, my inclination is to accept this change, but I am unsure since I keep both programs active. Can someone advise, please?Click image for larger version.
