Here is what happened. Yesterday I installed Nero and it changed all my files default viewer to Nero Showtime Player. I didn't like it so I uninstalled it. But then, when I uninstalled it, the default viewers for pictures, avi, etc were gone and I didn't know how to get it back, so I paniced and did a system restore to before I installed Nero 7.

Everything was fine until I tried to delete the install exe from my Downloads folder.

When I tried to delete it, it says:

Cannot delete Nero- It is being used by another person or program.

Close any programs that might be using the file and try again.

And when I tried to run it, it says:

C:/Downloads/Nero- is not a valid Win32 Application.

Help please :tazz:

:Deleted it using Command Prompt.. Nvm about helping.. >_>
