Native ISO Burner missing

For some reason or another the native ISO burning utility is missing out of my Win 7 Pro installation. It was there at one point and now is gone. WHen looking at a .iso file in win explorer it shows the blank file icon shown for a file of unknown type. I remember when it used to show a burnable DVD looking logo. Upon double clicking an iso it asks how to open this kind of file. I've checked the turn on/off windows feature in control panel to reactivate this feature but no dice... Any suggestions?

I'd install something like ImgBurn which is a free application with more functionality than the built-in burner.

Thanks for the quick reply, but I have plenty of free iso utilities like activeISO and magicdisc but I'd prefer to have the native one working again if possible along with those. Perhaps because I'm OCD if nothing else.

Hello H.Cole, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Using the ISO download in the tutorial below will restore the default associations for the .iso file extension, and should allow it to work again for you afterwards.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
