    I don’t trust these hacks. I need a really simple solution. I don’t want to types some mysterious code.

    thank you, that did it, but what I don’t get is that my system was working fine until just a bit ago, I have done no updates, nor anything else, but all of a sudden this starts up again, despite the fact that I have this “feature” disabled under the UAC window. Vista and 7 are just so awful and they keep making it worse.

    Running Win7 (32bit) I couldn’t get it to update registry. 1 problem is there’s a space in “[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Associations]” which shouldn’t be there. Even after correcting it, still wouldn’t update registry. Ended up manually entering the settings and now works fine. Thanks for this post!
