    "Sorry, there was a problem mounting the file"

    Whenever I try to mount an ISO file trying it to open with Windows Explorer I get the following message:

    I found a solution in the web that works by copying the ISO to any location and mounting the copied file. Does anyone have a permanent fix (maybe registry?) without having to copy the ISO? I don't know what's going on as I was able to mount ISO images in the past, maybe the latest Windows Update introduced a bug? Thanks

    Antivirus program stopping it??

    Where is the original ISO located? In what folder?

    Do you remember changing any settings related to or installing anything like USB or daemon tools ? Power ISO?

    Have you used any power tools programs that would have changed anything??

    Is smart screen on (internet explorer) -are these downloaded ISO's that your computer thinks are hazardous?

    Think like that and maybe you'll remember something that changed..

    Did they ever mount correctly before?
