Whenever I log on to my computer I get a bunch of errors saying windows cannot open this file .... choose from list or go to internet. Most of the Icons on my desktop have switched to the same picture of the piece of paper w/the corner folded and then the square w/the blue bar at the top with the 3 dots of something in the square. If I right click on the icon and go to properties and the general tab the file type says LNK. Most of my programs won't open and I have problems getting the all of the control panel programs to open to check things. Could this be a virus or was something misktakenly change on my computer to screw things up.
The file associations have been messed up a bit. Download the attached file and save it to your desktop. Right click the downloaded file and choose "Extract All"...extract it to your desktop. Right click on the extracted file and choose "Merge"...accept the change.
Kept trying it finally got a run ..... clicked on run and got this msg.....This program does not have a program associated w/it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel.
Try it with a program icon that isn't working and give me the name of the program it's supposed to open and the address in the "Target" field. I'm trying to determine just how the associations have changed.
