Exactly what are you trying to do?  What file type are you trying to associate with a program?

Well...I can't answer that...but IME when such occurs it's a situation of Windows file corruption or the system requiring chkdsk /r and/or defrag.  I suppose that insuffiicient free space on the C: partition might also cause such but that's just a guess that I can't verify.
