Hi guys,

Have a bit of a weird problem. One computer in a network has been having difficulties since yesterday.

I had to go in and reset all the file type associations for the office programs and now, for Access and Excel, when you browse to a document, it shows the correct icon for that file type. However, Word documents show an icon that looks to be notepad, but will open in Word when double-clicked.

My database opens Word documents with a simple line of code:
Application.FollowHyperlink Me.txtFile, , True

Me.txtFile holds the full path to the file. On this one machine (and only this machine), I get the security message "Some files contain viruses... Would you like to open this file?". I say OK and then get "No program is registered to open this file". If I browse to that specific file, I can open it. And yes, the location is in Trusted Locations in Word.

This morning, I uninstalled Office 365, rebooted and reinstalled and it's still the same.

Any ideas?


Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you've just made it again.
