Recently vista lost all the file associations and refuses to restore any. I have restored most from memory and using online services however i am stuck with a file association for wireless.
I can view wireless networks but cannot connect, when i click to connect to my wireless i get a box saying "connecting to linksys and a "working bar". After a few seconds i get a message saying !windows cannot connect to linksys when i click diagnose problem i get the message "this fule does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. crate an association in the set associations control panel"
I am not sure if the file assosciation is to diagnose the problem or connect to the internet... can anyone help?
thanks!!

Can you post a screen shot? I am curious if this is Windows or a connection manager throwing the error.

Try this fix: EXEFIX

Unzip the fix and extract the .REG file to the Desktop. Right-click the .REG file and choose Merge. Note that you need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

Reboot the computer.

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

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