This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I was installed Norton Antivirus 2006, and then all of the sudden, I kept getting this message, "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action." When I restarted, none of my executables were working. Whenever I try to run something, I get that error. If I try and go into Control Panel, it tells me "A short cut cannot be created here." If I go into My Computer, nothing shows up. I cant get into the regedit, msconfig, command prompt. I need help.

Norton has claimed yet another computer.
Sorry I can't be of help, I ditched Norton a while ago.

A system restore is your only option as far as I know. This happened to me, and the only thing I could find that fixed it was a system restore.

I've recently got this but WITHOUT Norton.

I did recently install XP SP3 however. I believe it's that honestly.

Your talking about say hitting an .exe you just downloaded right? Like an install and such? If so, same here..

Found this on web.. If this is your situation.. i'm going to test it shortly

Not sure then.. If it's not the File Open - Warning dialog I'm seeing then I've mistaken your issue for mine mate.

I just applied a registry hack to fix mine and need to reboot they say.

I hope this works out for ya mate! /sorry
