Hello AngusCameron, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if downloading and merging the library-ms option in the tutorial below may be able to help by it restoring the default associations and registry entries for libraries.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Brink thanks for the response, I ran the library-ms but I am still getting the same problem.

You might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before this started if available may help fix this for you.

You might also try running sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt to repair any corrupt Windows files.
