I have a computer with Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System, 64-bit.
Originally tried to open a photo and view it and selected to go to photo viewer and something went wrong.
The end result:
> Most of the program icons on the desktop changed to Microsoft Word icon
> Some of the icons on task bar are all Microsoft Word icons
recycle bin icon okay - still the original icon
computer user manual icon is still the original icon
when you go to desktop icon and right click, properties shows that
it's an executable file for that program (ex. firefox or adobe reader
show .exe at the end of the target)
when you double left click on the desktop icons the message is:
"windows photo viewer can't open this picture because either photo viewer doesn't support this file format or you don't have the latest update to photo viewer"
then there's a slideshow arrow at the bottom
picture at center looks like it covers up former icon
Performed one system restore and nothing changed.
Any help to fix this would be greatly appreciated. I'm a computer newbie so step by step instructions
would be greatly appreciated also!
