I don't need it, but you will.

We're going to try a repair installation to get the exe association back. We've tried everything else, but this should do the trick.

From the Welcome to Setup screen, press Enter

Accept the License Agreement...F8

The next screen should list your operating system and give you the option to repair...press R

This should start a repair install. It will look like it's doing a fresh install, but your data will be fine...this will just repair the operating system. You will likely be asked for the product key...use the one for the machine you're fixing.

Let me know how this goes.

Did you press Enter or R on the Welcome to Setup screen. It's confusing, but we need to tell it to set windows up...you need to press Enter first, then F8, then R on the first three screens.

It sounds like you're in recovery console...or headed that way. Is the screen you are on now black or blue?

You have got to be kidding me... :whistling:

We're down to two options. A parallel install or a format and fresh install.

Do you have important data on the machine?
