Windows 7: Windows 7, Service Pack 1

Windows 7 Home Premium 332 bit
Windows 7, Service Pack 1

Hi all. I just installed Service Pack 1 and it has corrupted my 32 bit files in that I am getting an Error Message: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. If one is alredy installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel. This has popped up even when I try to go to Windows Explorer or C:\ or its subcategories.
Has anyone had a similar problem? Is there a fix? TIA, Ed Weidman

Hello Ed, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if downloading and merging the lnk (LNK) and exe options in the tutorial below may be able to help after a restart. They will restore the default asscociations for these file extensions.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
