    What do you mean by "cutting off Windows Up-date"?

    You should never stop windows from updating and that is the reason why you are getting the warnings. File associations are exactly that, they need an association to work correctly. When these are updated the previous versions will not work and that is why you are getting the problems that you. Install the updates and everything will work fine and your pc will be safer, more stable and quicker.

    That is a lot clearer. Can I suggest that you go to your computer. disk properties, then run a full disk check and automatically repair errors. This should sort out anything it finds. If not I would suggest coming back here with full details of your system, as the more detail the better the quality of help you will get.

    You may have to fix your file association. Perhaps Ramesh can provide you with a 'fix'. Meanwhile, pls see How To Set or Change File Associations in Windows Vista.
