Default laptop USB Win 98SE

So basically, I buy this laptop off of Ebay for school..I just need it to take home and type papers.. whatever. So I go to use my USB flash drive but I need the driver. I download it but it turns out that the old user, for some reason, set .PDR files to open with Wordpad. I know how to change file association, I just need to know which program to set it to open with.

The program that should be set to open that is windows. You might consider installing Windows 2K.

I'm not sure if it is in the same place, but in XP you open my computer, select tools, folder options, file types. then you can change what opens them.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Yea, I know how to change it. I need to know what to change it to. How do I select Windows as the program that opens it?
