File association error message while trying to view profiles from Yahoo Messenger


When you attempt to view Yahoo user profile by clicking the View Profiles option in Yahoo Messenger, you may encounter the following message:

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel

The same error might occur when you click the Yahoo mail notification icon in the system tray.


To resolve the problem, perform the following steps. The instructions below apply to Internet Explorer 6.

If that does not help, click Start, Run and type the following command:

regsvr32 /i shdocvw.dll
