When I try to open up my services or some other admin tools I get an error saying this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.  Create an assoctiation in the Folder Options Control Panel.  When I go to control panel - folder options - everything is greyed out so I can't create any new associations.   I am logged on as administrator.
