[Help] Get Back Windows Explorer as File Manager

I installed GPSoftware Directory Opus as a Trial, and I liked it a lot and I used it as default file manager for a while, but I got bored (run out of $$ and trial ended ) and uninstalled it with IObit unistaller but when I rebooted I got nothing as file manager, that shit program didnt changed the reg to default and now I can only set 3rd party soft as default file manager.

See, screenshots,

This says I do not have a program associated with it. And if I have, I put it as standard on the control panel.

It show the same error above.

But wait up I can still open it on Win + E, then:

It shows me the same above error

Then I tried that reg.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


And it did not work.

I dont have ANY system restore.

What I can do?

I found this on my New Born VM

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

And it worked fine.
