Unhappy This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action in Internet Explorer

My Windows XP computer using IE6 will not open websites. When I type in a website address, such as Microsoft Corporation: Software, Smartphones, Online, Games, Cloud Computing, IT Business Technology, Downloads, I receive the following error message: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folders Option control panel." However, when I open the Files Option it seems that it all looks okay -- although I'm not sure if I'm looking for the right file extentions. Please provide a simple explanation of what I should do.

Re: File Associations lost in IE

Try Firefox. If that works stick with it. IE sucks ***

Re: File Associations lost in IE

Like Habib suggested, use an alternative like Firefox or Google Chrome. Or at least upgrade to IE 8 or IE 9.

If you still wish to use IE6, try the following steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Add/Remove Windows Components.
  3. In the Components list, click to de-select the Internet Explorer check box, and then click Next.
  4. Click Finish and Reboot your computer.
  5. After reboot, follow steps 1 and 2 again. In step 3 select the Internet Explorer check box, click Next and click Finish.
See if you can open websites now.
