Windows 7: Excel File and Program default association problem (registry looks ok)

Excel File and Program default association problem (registry looks ok)

Everything looks okay under the registry (I think) and assoc shows provides the correct output.

When I try to manually edit this under the control panel, it will not let me choose "EXCEL" it will not let me choose that file. Does anything stand out as being out of help here?

Code:
> assoc .xlsx
.xlsx=Excel.Sheet.12
Export of .xlsx
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx]
@="xlsx_auto_file"
"Content Type"="application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet"
"PerceivedType"="document"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\Excel.Sheet.12]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\Excel.Sheet.12\ShellNew]
"FileName"="excel12.xlsx"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\PersistentHandler]
@="{4887767F-7ADC-4983-B576-88FB643D6F79}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\ShellEx]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\ShellEx\PropertyHandler]
@="{993BE281-6695-4BA5-8A2A-7AACBFAAB69E}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\ShellEx\{8895b1c6-b41f-4c1c-a562-0d564250836f}]
@="{00020827-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"
