Windows 7: Can not open "Manage" using context menu any more

Can not open "Manage" using context menu any more

Hello together,

when I use my right mouse button and click on Computer -> Manage an error message appears:

"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 the Default Programs control panel."

I can use mmc.exe and add this snap it, so it is at the right place on the hard disk.

How can I fix this "broken link"?
