I need to chance some file associations. I tried right click/open with/choose default program on a file of the type for which I want to change the association but get a message saying ''Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.'' The program I want to use for this file appears in the menu that pops up when I click open with but clicking on the program gives me the same message as does Start/Default Items.
I am logged in as administrator so surely should have permission to change associations in this way.
The machine is a 2 month old HP laptop running windows 7 home premium.
Is thee another setting I need to change to allow me to do this?
