Windows 7: Unable to edit file properties - class not registered

05 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Unable to edit file properties - class not registered

My Windows Explorer is unable to view or edit any properties on my music files. Every field is blank on Explorer bar and every time i try to add tags (like artist, or title) via Explorer bar it came back with "error 0x80040154: Class not registered" message, and the value on Display tab (right-click -> properties) is not editable. But this is only happen on music files, I already tried to change some other pictures and documents properties and it works as it should.

I think the problem is within Explorer because I can view and edit the tags on foobar2000, Mp3Tag, and dBpoweramp. I already did a SFC scan and the result only shows corrupted image files from Windows Gadget that cannot be repaired, which is obviously not related to my problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
