    Hey guys

    so this afternoon i turn on the computer and i find i cant directly open programs. ie winamp, or anything that is installed in program files, but stuff like word is fine. I get a weird error msg " This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."

    previous nite I ran spybot and it said back up my reg. so I did I think. :/ and when i turned on the computer this afternoon it took awhile as if it was trying to fix some stuff, but it came up with some failed error.

    has any1 had this error before? to run file i have to right click>run as> and then click on wat user to run it with. Annoying!

    sorry for long post any help wud be great!

    cheers
