Hi dear friends.

I am facing a terrible problem on my pc.

The "open with" command disappeared completely from my file context menu.

The fact is that I cannot have alternate choices of opening media files or any files, cause the command is not there!

So please, if anyone knows, tell me the default command line to edit on my registry...or otherwise please provide me the appropriate solution.

My OS is Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

Any other questions are welcomed!

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Vista Forums!

If you double-click a file, what happen?

Hi my friend and thanks for your interest.

When I click on any multimedia file it opens with the associated program.

It gives me no other choices to open it with any other program...

I have also installed SP2 on my vista and it was working great, but I don't know why this is happening...

Download attachment, double-click it and answer Yes.
Maybe a restart is necessary...
