I have a weird problem. When I try and change the program that a file uses to open, the checkbox is checked and greyed out for every single file extension on my computer!

The problem is similar to this:

The problem is, for both registry keys it says to change, the "NoFileAssociate" is missing for both of them. How do I get it back? Thanks.

I also found this fix but am hesitant to do it. Thoughts? Thanks
