Hello Mathew, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you getting this error when trying to open a folder or a file?

For now you, might see if using the download for "Folder", or the file extension if for a file in the tutorial below may be able to help.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps for now,
