Can't open programs.

I have a Lenovo Desktop, running windows XP. My computer lets me access the internet, but I cannot open any programs such as looking at my pics, or listening my music. Can you tell me what may be the problem?

Re: Can't open programs.

gramps63, Download and run the appropriate file association fixes at the link below. Instructions are on the page. An example if you can't open programs you would download and run the EXE file association fix, shortcuts would need the LNK file association fix, etc.

For Image files download the small and free imgeditor.zip program.
