Hi Experts,

I am having this problem of choosing the program to open any file. I can not even open regedit.exe as suggested in some other solutions to this problem. I can not run any exe file as it asks me to select the program. I need urgent expert help. I have Vista home premium

thanks

Hi and welcome!

Try this: EXEFIX

Unzip the fix and extract the .REG file to the desktop. Right click the .REG file and choose Merge. Note: You need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

Restart your computer.

If the fix opens as a text file then right click it and select Open With > Choose Program Then, select Registry Editor.

If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
