This message comes up for everything!

"This file does not have a program associated with it for preforming this action. Create an association in Folder Options control panel."

It happened after I was removing a virus in safe mode. I can't open Firefox, I can't open Malwarebytes, I can't open AVG...I can't even open up a System Restore! What do I do?

Welcome aboard Posted Image

Download and run exeHelper.

  • Please download exeHelper from Raktor to your desktop.
  • Double-click on exeHelper.com to run the fix.
  • A black window should pop up, press any key to close once the fix is completed.
  • A log file named log.txt will be created in the directory where you ran exeHelper.com
  • Attach the log.txt file to your next message.

Note: If the window shows a message that says "Error deleting file", please re-run the program before posting a log - and post the two logs together (they will both be in the one file).

I too have this problem and as stated above it comes up "for everything" all folders and files. I can't access drives, programmes, I can't get the CMD from start, if I insert a external drive it won't open, web browser won't open, same for control panel etc. The only features I that are normal are the help and and task bar audio/power options. What can I do? I was running Malware Bytes, Spy Doc and Windows Essential at the same time when this occurred.

Thanks for the reply...but how do you propose I get this onto the affected computer. I can't open my web browsers and can't access drive folders?

//"This file does not have a program associated with it for preforming this action. Create an association in Folder Options control panel."//

Were you infected by vista rogue?

Right click on your browser-run as administrator

Doesn't that work?

Why can't you just copy this via a flash drive?

Download it on a computer you're posting from and move it to bad computer using USB flash drive.
