Jim -

The EPS file type has been disassociated with illustrator.

In your Windows Explorer, select Tools > Folder Options.
In the File Types tab, scroll down until you find the EPS format.
In the Details for EPS extension area, click the Change button to browse
and select the application to associate with EPS files.

That should do it.

I had a new and unwelcome phenomenon when booted up this morning. My EPS
files are no longer opening automatically in Illustrator, either from
Explorer or from within FrameMaker. I'm running Illustrator 9.x and
Frame 7p1x. I've not had much luck in the help files, on the web site,
or even scouring around preferences. Seems like it shouldn't be too hard
to fix. Any ideas are most welcome, especially if I can avoid a complete
uninstall and reinstall. I tried putting the install disk in and seeing
if I'd get a repair option, but no luck thus far.
