    It's a really long story but I'll try to keep it short.

    When I open "My Computer" (My favorite method) and double click on
    my cd or dvd drive, even when a disk is in, I get a box stating there is
    no association, for example, "setup.exe is reuired to open filetype of "File". Please type in the path to setup.exe" That's an exact error for my need for speed disk.

    I don't know how to fix this association.

    My computer was in a dire condition when this started, I was
    under attack from Virtumonde.trojan (Research which led me to this site)
    and during that process of cleaning was when the association was lost.

    I am good with regedit.

    Any info appreciated.

    Tnx,
    Bolt


    P.S. Right clicking the drive and selecting "Explore" works.

    Hmm why mess around, I dont think those links I just posted will fix that for you so I found this old standby, it will default all .exe files
    so they open with at least the default programs....

    http://209.85.165.104/search?q=cach...p_tweaks.htm+exe+fix&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=1

    It's down at number 12 exefix

    Simple regfile, download, double click and say "Yes" to merge into your Registry, may take a reboot, but usually not.
