Everything was fine until windows did an Update..Now when I click on a file to open I get

This file does not have a program attached to it for performing this action. Please install a program or if one is already installed create an association in the Default programs control panel.

 

Now another thing is, if I "right" click with my mouse, I can get it to open,which is all good, on the other hand why won't they open how I always do by just left clicking on the folder name............. Just curious what to do, can someone help in "easy terms,lol?

Forgot to mention, when I did a search, it said it may be the registry, and I have no clue what that could be.
