    Windows 10

    "Open With" choice at start up.


    Since the fall update I am greeted with a choice dialog at start up. It doesn't say what it wants to open but lists a dozen programs. I tried a browser but all it said before loads of code was that this program could not be run in dos mode. If I click off the box it vanishes. No virus or malware.
    Any ideas?

    Hi, could you post a screenshot please?

    Then try selecting Notepad, and post a screenshot of the result.

    Do you see the same if you shut down and do a cold boot, and if you restart?

    If you do a clean boot, do you still get the prompt?

    Odd


    Strange to say it has now stopped. I ran CCleaner and since it does not appear. It was a file open dialogue not program run. I have a picture but can't post it on my phone. Will come back if it resurfaces.
