Problem with Eclipse's Problem Panel

Hi there. I am having trouble with the "problem panel" in Eclipse 3.0.1. OS is WindowsXP. When I have a problem listed in the panel and I want to click on it, the java editor will go to the line, but windows will ask me what program I should use to open a .java file.

How can I fix this?

Thanks ahead of time

Strange. It sounds like Eclipse might be associating .java files with multiple editors. Try checking for this in the Windows-->Preferences.
