I recently uninstalled WinRar and ever since then any time I double click on a file to open it I get this:

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association
in the Set Associations control panel.

I can open up the files by right clicking and click open. I tried a system restore but that didn't work. Double click just doesn't work any more and its starting to get frustrating.


I am using Windows Vista Home Premium edition and it is 64- bit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Hello, and welcome to bleeping computer.


Download and run the Repair lnk utility and see if it solves your problem.
