The latest microsoft update

I don’t know if anyone else has this problem. The latest microsoft update reset 21 of my file associations and wants me to reactivate office because of so called hardware changes.

I don’t think microsoft should go about resetting file associations that I’ve changed.


Ya, changing file associations is bullcrap.

Also, that explains why I got a call about office needing activation. Gonna be a busy week I think!


Its bad enough that it reset my pinned start buttons and taskbar buttons

Im not a happy chappy
