hi everyone,
i was setting some new filetype commands inside the pop menu for folder..eg.: cmd, as i frequently use it.
i use to do in my old PC(winXP proff). but when i did the same in my new laptop(winXP home) i started
facing problems in a series. first i found my new filetype"cmd" was set as default in pop menu.
then i tried to delete this new command from pop menu but i failed do it.
then i tried to make "open" command as default in "File Folder" filetype, but i cannot see "open" there.
then i realised there is one more filetype "Folder", so deleted "File Folder" from the list.
now iam in great problem, i cant do anything...just when i try to open a folder with double click it immidiately a pop message comes with "Error:Access Denied".
i cannot open any folder.
as a temporary solution am opening folder in explorer view.
please help me if any one know back to get my previous folder settings.
[i changd the filetype reaching: Tools->Folderoptions->File Types
then i selected "File Folder" from Registered file types and changed "Advanced" settings, now i dont have
"File Folder" option in this registered file types]
thanking you all in advance

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes


Click start then help and support, undo changes to my computer with system restore, look for and run the most recent system checkpoint made before you did the adjustment
