    Display name: Assistance Livebox

    Company name: Orange"

    "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.
