Annoying “Use the Web service to find the correct program”

Post by Superl The Boss » Thu May 12, 2011 7:21 am

When you open a file with an unknown extension, instead of getting a list of programs to open the file with, you get an annoying dialog asking you to use a web service to find a program.

To fix that do:

1. The first thing you must do is open Note Pad and copy and paste these lines in it.
2. Then save it to whatever name you want but with the extension .reg
3. Double click it and accept to write to registry.

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoInternetOpenWith"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoInternetOpenWith"=dword:00000001


Then after when you will click a unknown extension you will get this screen.

To undo the change do this:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoInternetOpenWith"=-

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoInternetOpenWith"=-


Hope you enjoy \m/
