Computer "Manage"

When I right click computer and select manage I get an error "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 am not sure how it got unassociated with it but like to find a fix for it. I can got the system32 directory and run it from there but would like it to work from My Computer.

Thanks for any help

Try the easy first. Type from an administrators account type cmd in search. In cmd type sfc /scannow. Let us know what happens.

The problem is CompMgmtLauncher.exe stops working and loses its association with the Computer Management Console

Workaround

Create a Batch File under C:\Windows\System32\ called CompMgmtLauncher.bat

Download this attachment CompMgmtLauncher.bat save it under C:\Windows\System32

Go To Start Type Regedit and do a search for CompMgmtLauncher.exe
Mine was located here.

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage\command]

Under this key you will find a line that ends in CompMgmtLauncher.exe
Change the exe to bat and Manage should now work.

Hope this helps
