Download a Power toy software for windows XP.
Go to this site:
http://www.microsoft...ppowertoys.mspx
Then look for (on the right hand side) a software called Tweak UI
Then click on TweakUI.exe
Download it and install it.
Once that is done, go to Start>All Programs>Powertoys for Windows XP>TweakUI.
Once that has opened look for an option on the left hand side called Repair
make sure that Rebuild Icons is selected and click Repair now.
Once that is done, click ok, then reboot your computer.

It never worked but when i was installing php i had to install apache and then move certain .dll and .ini files into the windows and windows/system folders to recognise the .php extension ?

I think IE is trying to look for Outlook (not express), Word or Frontpage.
Open IE.
In the menu bar, click Tools->Internet Options.
In the Internet Options Window, click on the Programs tab.
See if one of the aforementioned programs are in anyone of the combo-boxes(drop-down menus); if yes, change it to an alternative.
