Folder Association

Start Menu no longer allows me to get into computer>manage. I receive following message after Start> rt click Computer > left click Manage:

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in Default Programs control panel.

Can someone help me with details to create an association? Could not find help in FAQ.

sfc/scannow did not find any violation. Probem persists. How can I create an association?

I can get into Computer Management with a workaround. I cannot get in through Start Menu > Computer > Manage. That command does not associate with the msc file. sfc/scannow, windows repair do not fix problem. Control Panel > default programs does not allow me to associate the msc file with Start Menu.

This is no big deal as I have a workaround. I was just trying to see if there was a way to make access via Start Menu to work.

PowerDVD file/folder association
Hello everyone! I installed Powerdvd (7.3) from the CD that came with my blu-ray player, and it worked fine. IFO files where associated to Powerdvd, so that opening the first IDO of a DVD image would result in the DVD playing normally with Powerdvd. When I played a blu-ray for the first...

So this is something I know I do (why? I don't know...). Do people associate others on this forum with their avatars? I know I do. Like I always picture Shawn as this alien guy, and John as Dr.Evil. Some of the others, I just always see them like that... Anyone else do this? ~Lordbob
