Windows 7
Message on screen

Hi there, my laptop just got restarted and from now when I want to open my folders on C:/ it shows me a message on screen : " This file doesnt have a program associated with it for perfoming this action. Please install a program or, if one is already instaled, create an association in the Default Programs control panel".

Can somebody tell me how to solve this problem, will really appreciate any help. Many thanks.

I believe that you are looking for one or both of these tutorials by Brink.

Default Programs - Set a Program's Default Associations

Default File Type Associations - Restore

If they don't work I don't know what to do.
