  1. Disable 'You have new apps that can open this type of file'


    Had to read this a few times to get it right.

    You Enable to switch off, and Disable to switch on. I wonder who thought that one up???

    Shawn - just a thought. It might be less confusing if you used 'Switch On' and 'Switch Off' in the title at steps 6 & 7 instead. Then you're not Enabling something to Disable it, and vice versa.

    Or you could get MS to change the wording of the setting in the Group Policy Editor *chuckle.

    Incidentally, I did this through the Group Policy Editor. My W8.1 edition doesn't have this function. I wonder if I will still have it when W10 goes live?

    :)

  2. "How do you want to open this type of file" box, but no filename listed!

    In Task Scheduler, it would appear as "AssistanceLivebox"

    - - -

    Taskname: AssistanceLivebox

    Display name: Assistance Livebox

    Company name: Orange"

    Command-Line: C:\program files (x86)\orange\assistance livebox\assistancelivebox.exe

    - - -

    Try this:

    Press WinKey + R, and type:

    cmd /k schtasks /query |clip

    Press ENTER

    Open Notepad, press CTRL + V to paste the command output, from clipboard. Use the Find option and search for "AssistanceLivebox" or "Orange".

    And this guide may be helpful.

    "How do you want to open this type of file" box, but no filename listed!

    Niranjan,

    Thanks for replying. To answer your question, I don't know what type of file is trying to be opened. If you are viewing this on a device with a large enough screen, I posted a screen capture of the box in the original post. I had never seen this before.
    Previously, if I tried to download/open something from a browser, it would list the filename, but in this case, none is listed. Also, it appears to be random in timing, although I've only noticed when I have a web browser open. The message I listed regarding
    "program.txt" was just the response I received when I tried selecting notepad to open the unknown file.

    As you instructed, I ran sfc /scannow. Windows Resource Protection found no integrity violations.

    Thanks.

    Disable 'You have new apps that can open this type of file'

    Hello Maggi,

    LOL, yeah it can be a tongue twister for the brain with how MS has it like that. However, I think it's best to leave it as is since that's how it's officially recognized and to not make any more confusing. *Smile

    Time will tell if group policy will still be there for non Pro edition of W10 or not.
