  • Hi,


    As you said, this may be caused by some corrupted system files. We could take the following steps to check it:


    1.    Since this issue never had happened before, you could boot into the Last Good Known Configuration or preform a system restore to get back to a previous time point which Windows 7 worked fine.


    2.    Create a new user account to test if this issue persists. If not, you could try the following link to fix this issue:


         Fix a corrupted user profile


    3.    Check whether your computer affected by virus and malicious software.


    4.    Modifying the Associations of programs for a test:


    Change the properties for a file


    Change which programs Windows uses by default


    Hope it helps.
