Chris,

That's a terrible accusation. Just want to point out that this is caused by old third-party software such as Winzip that attempt to directly modify registry keys for file association and other user preferences.

The Windows 10 operating system now maintains a checksum/hash of the 'Default App' user preference registry key values. When a direct registry change is detected we validate the checksum. If the checksum fails then the user defaults are restored. If the third-party application repeats the registry change... you may get into an infinite loop of user preference restoration.

Pass the word around... software developers should no longer directly modify these registry keys. Users may use the 'Set Program Access and Computer Defaults' to modify file types and associations.

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
