open destination file command doesn't work

Hi, I have Vista Home Premium 32-bit with Intel Pentium Dual Core T2390. I'm sorry, I worded it wrong in the title - it should be "open file location" command.
For some time the "open file location" command doesn't work. I followed the steps with the same problem posted on this forum a while ago, link below.
http://www.cybertechhelp.com/forums/...d.php?t=211789 The first part (shell menu handler)went the same way (correct), however in the second
part the result was: the system didn't find such key or value in the registry. Could someone tell me what should be the next step? BTW, I'm not using IE, also
it is embedded in my system and I'm not sure if I can completely uninstall it, because (unfortunately) some apps relay on it for updates.
All help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi John and welcome. If you are referring to the .bat file that Mosaic1 asked telanor to run, please post your results here. If not, please provide more detail.

Yes, this is what I'm referring to. The first result was exactly the same, so I'm
not going to post it. The 2nd is different, but you'll have to rely on my translation, since my native language is not English (and so is the result).

Ok, I think the easiest fix would be to download and merge the lnk file association fix from here. Reboot afterwards and let me know if this fixed your problem.

Thank you for the help, but I think the problem is caused by IE9 Beta that I
unfortunately downloaded. Also, your proposed solution fixes the symptoms
rather than the causes and that in not exactly elegant way. I think, I'll pass.

How odd. I thought you had followed the steps in the link you referred to in your first post? IE9 beta was clearly identified as the cause of that particular issue.

That's fine however the output of the bat file you ran clearly indicates that you have missing/corrupted registry settings which was not the case where IE9 beta was identified as being the cause. The downloaded file (a regedit) from winhelponline merely reinstates the W7 file association default for .lnk files and in doing so, will repair your corrupted registry settings.
