    Lightbulb Feedback: Fix File Associations in Windows 7 & Vista with File Association Fixer

    We are pleased to release File Association Fixer for Windows 7 & Vista.

    If you find that you are unable to open particular files, identify the type of file and use Fix File Association to fix file type associations easily, with a click!

    File Association Fixer detects whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista installed and accordingly offers you the relevant fixes only.

    We always recommend that you create one before making any changes to your system.



    File Association Fixer has been developed for The Windows Club by Ritesh Kawadkar, based on the inputs from my MVP colleague Ramesh Srinivisan.

    When I try to `open` File Association Fixer on Windows 7 using Internet Explorer 8 - the page tries to `open` at the rate of approx. 2 pages per second [guesstimate] - unsuccessfully - I then have to FORCE a shutdown to stop this - or it would continue - NON STOP!

    I have exactly the same problem trying to `open` FixWin - another Windows Club recommendation.
    I Scan and run `checks` on my Computer on a very regular basis - nothing has shown to be running incorrectly.

    Although I am inexperienced in `Computing` - I am only trying to `Select` and `Open`an item - I am sure that I am not doing anything wrong.

    I mention my inexperience because I need any suggestions to be worded as simply as possible please - I have only approx. 6 Months experience on a Computer and late in life.

    Is it possible that I am having problems because these items are `Zip Files`- I have not had any problems with any other type of File or Program.

    I would really appreciate help with this - in as simple terms as possible please.
    "Thanks", CHRISMUR.

    2 pages per second - didn't get clearly. Can we have any screenshot to rectify the issue?

    Default File Association and FixWin problems

    My guess of 2 pages a second are because Internet Explorer keeps trying to open EITHER FixWin or File Association Fixer - If left HUNDREDS of pages will `stack up`.
    When this is happening - nothing else can be done - I can only force a shutdown OR turn off the Computer - no `keys` and often the mouse will not work - so I doubt whether I could `Printscreen` - in any event while IE8 is trying to open one of the above only a WHITE screen can be seen - so `Printscreen` would not show anything.

    Just FYI but when you run this application on XP, the fonts look weird. Its like tthey don't use XP's Cleartype or maybe its not an XP font.

    Hi, I'm sure its developer Ritesh will be here to help you out.

    Meanwhile try my suggestion. Run the app as an Admin. In case you get the Unhandled Exception error, click on Continue and see it it helps.

    In any case before doing that click on Details and copy-paste the entire error report and paste it here.

    Help Please?
    Please tell me which OS you are using?
    Also is it 32 bit or 64 bit?

    Meanwhile I would suggest you to download and install .NET Framework 3.5 in case you don't have it.
