    Last night:
    - I applied the latest updates from Microsoft which included quite a few of MS Office 2010/2013 changes
    - I shutdown my windows 7 64 bit VM, and I updated some of the Adobe Creative Cloud apps to the latest version: photoshop, illustrator, muse, media encoder and animate cc & mobile device packaging (formerly called Flash).
    This morning:
    After I started windows 7, I noticed the file associations for the office documents were messed up - they were handled by pages & numbers. The default browser was set to IE. I like & use FF as my default browser.
    Anyone experienced this or similar, where the file associations get messed-up on the windows side?
    I am using yosemite and parallels 11.1.2.

    Hi @costabas, may be the Windows updates have caused this issue. If you have a Time Machine backup, please try to restore the virtual machine. Refer to this article.
