Hi I have a few problems I have been searching all over the internet to get rid of. Hopefully someone here can help me out.
First problem is I cant open any applications directly. This includes media player, firefox, messengers etc. I just get an error that reads, "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel."
I have read about setting up the associations on various sites for specific file extensions but haven't found anything about fixing my problem, and the odd thing is I can still use these apps if I open them indirectly, for instance if I right click a media file and click open with media player then it opens and works fine.
My second problem is that while I was able to use firefox I was being redirected to some random sites every so often when I would try to go to sites like this one that I have used many times. Something like sales.liveperson.net and some others that I didnt bother to remember(nothing serious like porn popups but still annoying). Is this something to do with the new firefox update?
My third problem is that I cannot run regedit. When I try I am give the window that says it cant be opened because it needs to know what program created it and gives me the option to find it manually or use the web service to find the appropriate program.
Thanks in advance for any help!!
