Please try System Restore from safe mode command prompt before entering the OS.

Restart your PC and press F8 key just after BIOS post screen.

When you are at the command prompt, give the command


If C:\Windows is different in your PC, change it accordingly.

I remember, rstrui.exe was in System32 directory. Please check it.

If still no joy, use a virus scanner from Command Prompt.

Also see before doing anything.

Hope the above helps.

brambowheeler, Try the exe file association fix at the link below. Usage instructions are on the page.

Note: If you can't access the Internet with the problem computer use another computer to download the reg file fix onto a CD, thumb drive, or floppy and transfer the file to the problem computer then follow the Usage Instructions.

After that .reg file is merged into the registry successfully restart your computer.
