    Do you also have Photo Plus installed?
    If so you may need to reassociate the spp file type back to Photo Plus

    sfc /scannow might resolve the problem, but it might revert some other Windows settings back to their original state, also. It doesn't affect programs or files, just a relatively small number of settings. However, it's a deep fix, and it might solve your problem...
