Dose it say *which* file does not have a program associated with it?

Are you using any sort of macro programs at all? Can you open Explorer windows manually? Is every folder navigable?

Curious - I just tried it and this is what happens :

From the Taskbar icon:

From the .exe:

From the start orb, it opens to Libraries:

Hi Premier,

It may have been there all along - I don't use it normally.

I use it daily - and my Win + E shortcut works fine in 7048. Let me fire up VBox and see about it in 7057.

Oops- epic fail - and I don't have time to see what the matter is.

Pressing Windows Key + E works fine for me in the 7057 build.
