The XP CD would surely cure your PC's ills. If you want to keep plugging away, I'm game.

Explain exactly which programs lack association, and provide as many details as possible.

We might as well shoot for 100 replies <_<

Yeah I will look for the cd, but I am not sure if I will find it! To better explain what happens whenever windows loads, I go to click on a Icon to run an executable prgram it comes up with an error that says "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel." This message comes up whenever I try to load a program. But after running a few different virus scans, I am never finding any kind of virus. It might have something to do with my system files being corrupt? But I have been basically out of commission the last week, other then sometimes I could right click on a program and click run as and the program would sometimes run. So you see why I am so frustrated! Shooting for 100!! <_<

In an earlier email i was aked to check what kind of file system I have for my drive and it is FAT32, I am not sure if this makes a difference but can you please just let me know what this would mean, and if it could help maybe to solve our problem.

Thanks!

No, the file system won't make any difference. You may try changing the file associations for each type of file that's not opening. See this MSKB article: http://support.micro...9&product=winxp
