Click on the link below, then look to the "EXE File Association Fix", and download the .zip file to your computer desktop.. ONce there, unzip the file, then double click on the "xp_exe_fix.reg" file that is inside, choose "OK/Yes, when it asks "Are you sure?".. Restart the computer.. It should now run those problem programs and Control Panel icons.
Hope this helps.
I got my PC infected with some spyware and virus from online.
I used Spybot Search and Destroy to clear the spyware and the virus. I downloaded the Spyboth Search and Destroy software from download.com. The software worked and it did the job by clearing the spyware. But here comes the main problem.
Every time I try to open any program, my PC asks me to "Choose the program you want to open this file". So I have to go to Browse and use the file. I tried to go to Control Panel and try using the Add/Remove program to check if there was any program I can use to fix this problem. But none of the programs in the Control Panel work.
"C:\\Windows\System32\rundll.exe Error! Application not found"
This happens for each and every application in the Control Panel. The next thing I tried to do was go for the Desktop properties. By right clicking on the desktop, I go to properties. It says the same thing.
I do not want to reboot the entire system as I would lose many important files and softwares from my school. Please Help!!!!PLEASE !!!!
