Thank you
try this 1,

Just copy the text starting from"Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" --->

open notepad and paste it---->save the file as fix.reg (Note: don't forget the

extension .reg while saving the file.)

Then double click that file ( fix.reg) ---> click on Yes.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.exe\UserChoice]

Say "Thank you" 3

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment
