    Whenever i want an application on my computer it tells me to set associations on the control panel or something like that. This happens whenever i click on any application or shortcut. It only opens a app. if i right click and press start. can anybody give me a code to fix it. by the way just recently i had to remove a virus and had to mess with the registry keys that open up to shell/open/comand and deleted the default. thanks in advance

    No one is really going to try and help you if you:

    1. Type unreadable run-on sentences
    2. Don't bother providing:

    • Operating system
    • Exact error you're receiving
    If you're not willing to put the tiniest bit of effort into getting yourself some help, no one is going to rush to help you. You might be entitled at home, but in the real world - you're not.

    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.
