Crashing if I open a document, but not if I use the 'File' menu?

I've got InDesign CS5 on Windows 7. If I open InDesign and use File > Open, I can launch my projects without trouble. If I go to the file in Windows Explorer and double-click it, InDesign launches, but hangs without opening the document and I have to force-quit from the Task Manager. Any suggestions? It's not a major issue, but it's a hassle not to be able to simply select a recent document and open it from the start menu.

    Re-associate InDesign with the file type


    Right Click > Open With > InDesign should be listed but the belt and suspenders approach might merit actually browsing to the InDesign .exe file
