    whenever i startup my computer, I am greeted with a File Association Helper message reading:
    Unable to find software for the selected file.
    File name: Jonah (my user name on this computer)
    I have also been having issues with Windows Explorer and wonder if they may be connected in some way.
    thank you

    If Windows explorer is still playing up after then post back
