Ok try this

Run DSS again, using these instructions:

Click START> Run - then copy the following bold blue text and paste it into the Run box & click OK

"%userprofile%\desktop\dss.exe" /daft

Read the disclaimer and click OK.

Click on Scan.

Place a checkmark next to the entries displayed when the scan is finished then Click on Fix.

Repeat the scan; you should get a message "All Associations OK!"

Next, click Save Log, and post this log in your next reply.

Sorry I made a mistake, try this

Please download DAFT and save it to your desktop:
  • Double-click the daft.exe icon.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • Select everything it is displaying there
  • Click the Fix button.
  • Then rescan with DAFT again - it should say now that "All associations are OK"
  • Close DAFT if you receive that message. This means that it is fixed now.
