So for some reason all my computer programs, no matter what they are all have Gimp Icons, and now of my programs work, I think I may have changed the default program to Gimp or something because now now none of my programs work and have error messages. How can I fix this? i am using Windows 7 Home Ultimate 64

Hello ZarriZombiekill ...

Rather than go through this and try to change things manually, try running the "Fix It" tool provided in this Microsoft Knowledge Base article.

Did you just use the Fix It tool? There's nothing that it does that would affect the machine starting.

Try booting into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key as the machine is starting up. Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode then press Enter. Give it a little bit to load, it may take several minutes.
