    Hi, VTranGT :)


    Download the enclosed folder. Save and extract its contents to the desktop. It is a setup information file. Once extracted right click on the file and select install.

    Restart the computer. Test CMD and Regedit. If able to run, Please download DAFT and save it to your desktop:
    1. Double-click the daft.exe icon.
    2. Click on the Scan button.
    3. Select everything it is displaying there
    4. Click the Fix button.
    5. Then rescan with DAFT again - it should say now that "All associations are OK"
    6. Close DAFT if you receive that message. This means that it is fixed now.

    Test and kep me posted.
