My application wants to open with another application

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I have never had this problem before and can't figure out how to correct it. When I went to my Photoshop 7.0 folder to open Photoshop, I saw that that application icon was NOT the usual icon for Photoshop. This was also true for ImageReady. They appear as blank sheets of paper. They will not open either application.
When I click on the Photoshop Icon to get info, it says that it is an application (Power PC) - and lists the correct version etc. Under Name & Extension it lists Adobe Photoshop 7.0. Here is where it gets odd - the Open With window is there and is set to Script Editor (2.1.2) It also gives me the choice of Automator Launcher.app, Automator.app, Easy Card.app and Microsoft Language Register. The same is true for Image Ready. Of course this window option shouldn't be there at all. I trashed the entire program and reinstalled
and the same thing happens. I checked my backup on an external drive and it has changed. I use these programs all of the time and this just happened in the past week. I just can't figure out what happened or why. Can someone please help me get this resolved. Thanks.

Hi RLS_NJ, and a warm welcome to the forums!
Could be many things, we should start with this...
"Try Disk Utility
1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
*Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*
3. Click the First Aid tab.
4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
5. Click Repair Disk, (not Repair Permissions). Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."

Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
(Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)
If it still doesn't work try Reset Launch Services...

Reboot.
