This means that the application used to open the file does not exist or is not installed on your computer, what kind of file is it? document, video, audio?

First,
try to run update-mime-database /usr/share/mine. Probably restart your window manager then. Are u using kde? Where/how do you get this message?

Did you get this solved? If not you can do this:

$ vim /home/$USER/.kde3.5/share/mimelnk/application/octet-stream.desktop

change:

Hidden=true

to:

Hidden=false
