This just started happening yesterday and quite honestly I'm at a loss as to why this is happening. I've scoured the net and this forum looking for a solution first but came up with nothing. To give you a better idea if I don't portray this clearly enough I've included screenshots. I'm not exactly sure what you call the icon on the taskbar that you can use to get to your files, but regardless..mine no longer works. When I click on it, i get this error message: explorer.exe This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel. Also, when I use the Windows Key and E, I now get this error: explorer.exe Unspecified error Any ideas?? The Default Programs control panel offers no real insight for me..
