    An application caused a problem with the default application...


    Greetings.

    I did a reinstallation of windows 10. I downloaded the latest version, 20H2, and since the reinstallation this notification has appeared:

    "an application caused a problem with the default application settings for files ..."

    It has appeared to me 2 times, once for PDF files and once for HTML files.

    Any idea why these notifications?Thanks in advance for your assistance.
    Windows 10 pro 64 bits 20H2

    :)
