My kids have bluestacks installed on another laptop and someone "they will not admit who" clicked on associate all files with bluestacks. Now all my computer apps and everything including internet doesnt work because I guess all file extensions have been changed to open blue stacks. I cant even get an installation disc of windows 7 to start because it keeps telling me there are errors. Can someone help me fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

Hi DaHaYn :)

You can easily reset the files associations using the Registry script linked in the tutorial below.

If not, you can always do it the normal way via the Control Panel like shown in that second tutorial.

Personally, I would go with the second tutorial since it's easier and takes less time.

Hi Aura,

 

     I tried doing this with IE to at least get an internet connection and received the following error. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution in available. Then only option is to close the program. So I have no way to connect to the internet. I tried this first with the hopes that I could get to Microsoft.com to download the windows 10 demo since my windows 7 disc wont even work in the laptop.....

 

Thanks,

DaHaYn

Are you able to boot in Safe Mode with Networking and work from there? The procedure is shown in the link below.
