    Hi Brink,

    Could you make a download available for
    the .zip extension fix in a non-zipped form?

    Hi Ardneh and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

    This does seem to be a catch-22 situation. In order to extract the fix, you need to have solved the problem for which you still need the fix.

    Here is the .reg file of that fix.

    I have tried many registry fixes and none of them are working. I have even gone into the open with menu, unchecked the make default option and then been able to boot one application but when I log off and log back on it resets and each application just opens notepad.

    The Microsoft website gives a registry edit to implement, but it does not work. Another website gave a similar edit, but it also said that what is needed is the UserChoice tab in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.exe\"

    Hello Snowe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Could you give more details on what file extension(s) this is happening with?

    Ok. This is happening only with the .exe file extension.

    the best way to explain what is happening is like, the registry changes aren't sticking. I don't know what that would be called, but whenever I double click the registry edit you posted and microsoft told me to make, it tells me the changes have been applied, but when I go into regedit it shows no changes have been made.
