    Windows 8 not opening some programs.


    How do you want to open this type of file (.psd)?

    I'm choosing more options and picking photoshop as the default app, but nothing is happening.
    The same things happens to .torrent files, only works if i have the program open and drags the file into the program.

    Files it happens with:
    .psd
    .torrent
    .mobi
    And the files are blank.

    Cleaning and Tweaking tools I use:

    Filehippo Update Checker.
    Revo Uninstaller.
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    Ccleaner.
    Free Window Registry Repair.
    Broken Shortcut Fixer.
    Auslogics DiskDefrag.

    Laptop Model:
    Bærbar Lenovo B5400-computer | En bærbar computer til erhvervslivet til en fornuftig pris | Lenovo (DK)
    Hope you can help me guys

    You have to associate them with corresponding programs. Some of those "cleaning" programs might have changed that.
    I suspect one of these :Filehippo Update Checker, Free Window Registry Repair. Broken Shortcut Fixer.
