it's on windows vista
no matter what i try to run i get
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action, create an association in the Set associations control panel."
it even says that if i go to the place where it's installed and it says the same thing.
i tried a system restore but that didn't work at all. i can open folders.
any ideas?

ok so if i click on a bookmark i can get into firefox or if i click on a video my gom player works. so i guess it's just clicking on the programs themselves that's the problem cuz i can't even open msconfig without getting that pop up.

ok so i came a cross this http://www.winhelpon...dows-Vista.html
and i fixed the problem.
