Hi, 

I have just had my friends system cleaned with help from Pystryker, he did a super job. Now I the following issue that I need help with. When a tile is clicked on main page the program window displays for a split second then the screen reverts to main page with the tiles. This will happen no matter what tile is clicked. The start page icons will open any program that is clicked but not the tiles. 

I have the OTL program saved should you require the log.

Thank you for your help.

Start with the .lnk fix.

Hi Ztruker,

I have followed your advice and I have re installed the file associations with resolving the issue. I have tried to reset and open the store but it hangs when the service tries to open the store after flushing; so it cannot be flushed and reset.
