This only pertains to windows 2000 and above. Any time within windows where you do not have access to something or can't delete, or a option is grayed out may be related to rights/privileges. If your not logged in as Administrator try logging as administrator, also if possble try logging in under a different user account to see if same issue is occurring. Hope this was any help to you.

Sounds like best solution is to restore windows to when it worked ok. this will unravel the chaos-ed registry and make it appear new again. you do have system restore enabled, right? open START->ALL PROGRAMS->ACCESSORIES->SYSTEM TOOLS->SYSTEM RESTORE and find a date to when it worked fine.

Aspire 5750 keeps showing a message There is no associated program to perform the requested action and will not operateon windows 7 Home Premium. What can I do? . What can I do


What type of file are you trying to open? Are you trying to watch a movie, open a document that was written on an older computer, or some other file?

If the software that should open the file is on your computer but not associated with that file type, right click on the file and choose Open With > Choose default program. Then Browse through programs on your computer (Program Files and Program Files (x86) and their sub folders). Alternatively, click Start > Control Panel > Programs. Under Default Programs, select Make a file type always open in a specific program. Scroll down to the extension and add a program for it.

Many computers do not come with all the software you might want. In that case, you will need to get the software or a plug-in to add to your software. For example, a computer with a Blu-ray optical drive may not have the Blu-ray player software. Office files may have similar limits. (WordPad reads Word files; Excel and PowerPoint viewers aren't always included.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the file type you need to open for specific program suggestions.

    My Windows Explorer does not show extentions


    By default, file extensions for known file types are hidden in Windows XP. However, you can change this setting so that file extensions are shown for files in a certain folder or for all files on your hard disk.
    To show file extensions, first open any folder on your hard drive, such as "My Computer" or "My Documents." Then select "Folder Options..." from the Tools menu as shown below.
    545a526.gif When the Folder Options window opens, click the View tab. This will show the file and folder view settings.
    95b32b0.gif One of the options under Advanced settings is "Hide extensions for known file types." If this option is checked, uncheck the checkbox and click Apply or OK. This setting is system wide, so unchecking this box will make file extensions appear in all folders.
    If you decide to hide file extensions at a later time, you can check the box again and click OK to revert back to the previous settings.

    Hard disk Problem


    Some application has modified the default action that windows should take when opening the disk drives, by the moment, you can access the disks right clicking and selecting OPEN in the menu.
    You have to reinstall windows to restore the default open action or look and try to restore it manually from "Folder Options" > "File Types".
