I don't have the Nokia App nor do I have SoftSqueeze, but perhaps the
following will help. Perhaps not. :-)

In Win98, you can open a directory window and select "View->Folder Options"
from the menu. In the resulting dialog, you can select "File Types"
and modify the way various file suffixes are handled. I would suggest
either changing the definition to point at the SoftSqueeze application
or deleting the definition and re-installing SoftSqueeze; The SoftSqueeze
installer will probably re-create the association for you.

You said you use WinXP and not Win98, but there's probably a similar
option in there somewhere.

The following is off-topic:

You should use "+44" instead of "0044" in your phone number. Different
countries use a different prefix for international calls. People in
North America, for instance, would dial "01144" to call through to
England. "+ countrycode" is the international standard notation.

All the numbers in my Nokia phone start with "+44" (get the "+" by
dialling "**". When I'm home (in London), the network knows what to
do (drop the +44 and use 0), when I'm abroad, the foreign network knows
what to do (drop the "+" and use 011, for instance).
