    I run Vista Home Premium 32 bit edition.
    Lately, I have been having the issue that when I right mouse click on a file to open with a different program, I still get a short list of programs I have already used to open a particular fie, but when I right click on choose default program, I get an error message saying that this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations Control Panel.
    It used to open another window with a host of programs to choose from, as well as the choice to always open with the chosen program, and an option to browse or search the internet for a program to open the given file.
    This is the same issue no matter what type of file I right-click on.
    Please help,
