I have recently been getting an error when browsing the web.  I haven't noticed any negative effects other than the the annoying error pop up once or twice a day.  The error I get is as follows:


In the header it says c:\\windows\system32


and this is the message:


this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action, please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel.


Any help would be greatly appreciated


EDIT:  I left the error message open for reference if need be.  With the error message open I opened task manager to see if anything unusual was running.  In the apps section a program named ytdi (32 bit) is there.

Take a look at the suggested repair at Window Eight Forums.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
