    The Open Command Execution within the registry can sometimes be changed or altered when a client has multiple web browsers installed on their machine.  This can cause applications that have default values to not work properly, such as outlook or excel not opening a web browser when you click on a link.  To fix this issue reset Internet Explorer to the default browser of the machine.
    To do this open Internet Explorer and go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs (Tab) > and select “Make default” under “Default web browser”.

    This is always a handy thing to know, often times organizations will change name leaving the prior system install left with the older organizations name, or owner. Here you can change both the Organization and Owner that is registered to your computer or server.

    Please follow these steps:

    Run the Registry Editor, by going to Start > Run > [then type] regedit

    When the editor is opened you will want to browse to the following directory.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion

    Then with the CurrentVersion directory selected perform a back up of the key your are modifying.

    To do this click File > Export > [Select your save destination and name the file] > Save

    After performing your backup you can change the values of RegisteredOrganization, and RegisteredOwner simply by double-click on them.

    I have provided a screen shot of what it should look like when you get to the correct place.

    Registry Owner & Organization

    If you notice I highlighted the directory you should be in as well as the only fields that should be modified.  If you accidentally modify something you did not mean to modify, just re-import the registry key by double clicking on the file you saved.
