Game Explorer stopped working!

My Vista Game Explorer has stopped working. When I d-click on a game in there
now, I get the following error:

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this
action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel"

This happens for installed games and Windows Vista ones.

I have Ultimate on a clean-install.

Also, where is Texas Hold 'Em??

Thanks

Thanks for the reply, Steve,

I am unable to either create links nor delete the ones that are in
there..What is the real path of the folder?

Do you know where Texas Hold 'Em is?

Jake, did you do a registry tweak or use a 3rd party tweak to remove the
shortcut arrow overlays on desktop icons? If you removed the "IsShortcut"
key, then that is why your games links no longer work in Game Explorer.

That would be it :)

Can't help but tweak a bit. Thanks, Jane
