This problem is concerning my friend's computer. He left for Armenia and gave his computer password to his younger sister, and when he came back...he couldn't run any programs other than Internet Explorer. He keeps getting an error message saying: "This file does not have a rpogram associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Flder Options control panel." Beofre I knew that I couldn't run any .EXE files, I downloaded Ad-Aware 2007, SpyBot S&D, and transfered the install file and serial key of RegSupreme PRO from my computer. I tried installing them, but to my surprise I got the same error message. So I searched around on the internet and found some registry fixes (.REG files) that I had found on the internet from a varieyty of forums. I unloaded them and tried to run them but I got the same error message as I did before. I also tried running "regedit.exe" as "regedit.com" but it still didn't run. It said that it couldn't find the program. I reinstalled Wondows XP Professional...but still no improvement. Please help me...I don't know what else to do.
