I have the following problem, everytime I try to open a folder on windows explorer...I have the following error:

this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.

There must be a missing extension in my program default.

I am running Windows 7 utimate 32bits

Thanks for your help

Thanks Seanyc111,

My issue is not an .exe problem.  My issue is with Windows Explorer, I can not open any of my folder when I click on it.

Thanks Again
