Such problems are usually caused by corrupted or missing registry keys. If the SFC scan doesn't find and fix the problem automatically for you, you can fix it manually.

Open the start menu and type regedit in the search field. Once you open Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\New\ and ensure the "(default)" value is set as "{D969A300-E7FF-11d0-A93B-00A0C90F2719}"

If the value is already set as that, you can download this fix. Just open the reg file contained in the zip archive and the changes will be made automatically.

Mike,

I am not a "techy" - so...when I click on the .zip file I have an option to "open" (instead of save as). When I do this and click on the file I get a message that the "improper merges can cause damage....." I just want to be sure that this is OK.

Thanks

It's already saved. You can rename it or copy it, the simplest of procedures, or you can make a zip in a zip, I recommend 7-Zip, http://www.7-zip.org/

Hi

I always save them to a Downloads folder first and then use an unzip program to open them, 7-zip works fine, that's what I'm using too.

I'm not sure about the message you get, I haven't seen that myself but it probably has something to do with merging compressed files.
Once you set 7-zip as the default, you won't have to think about it when you click on a file it will open it.

It doesn't matter whether the download is saved or not. The important thing is adding it to the registry.

Mitchell, I download and run and it just opens up my notepad and nothing else. I am not a computer guy so what am I missing.

Thanks!
