Windows 7: Link not working

26 Sep 2009   #1

Link not working

Using Win 7 RTM (64-bit). When I right-click Computer (desktop) -> Manage [aim is to get to disk management] I get an error message "The file does not have a program associated with it..." and I have to then open the control panel, yada, yada, yada. Is there a simple registry "fix" I can do to fix this broken link?

Did you delete any files from the Adminstrative Tools folder? Computer Management must be resident there for the context menu item to work.

No and I wouldn't arbitrarly delete a file/link such as that. I can't figure out what happened.

I would not arbitrarily decide to start the troubleshooting process at the end of the checklist either.
