If you find that you cannot open a particular file type, then our File Association Fixer v2 for Windows 10/8/7 will be able to easily help you fix, repair, and restore the broken file associations. Broken file associations are typically caused due to a corrupted Registry. Again the reason for a corrupt registry could be malware or bad software. As a result of this corruption, your Windows OS is unable to open some files or a particular file type.
