Well, it depends on what you mean by fix. But I'd fix it by installing *n?x.

Have you tried right-clicking things and using "open with"? Have you tried using "start run"? Have you googled? You have to diagnose exactly what your issue is... It seems likely that your registry got a bit over-deleted and all the file associations were removed. Again, google is your friend.

Try logging on as "administrator", no password (or use the administrator password if you know there is one)

Hit ctrl-alt-del TWICE at the welcome screeen to get a logon prompt.

How would that solve anything? File associations are, I believe, stored in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT or whatever, which is global to all users, or was last time I checked (obviously, pushing *n?x, I am not running windows)

Must be a Dell (or another OEM). Damn, I hate when they do that.

Okay, can you create another user in contol panel-users?

Or, can you right-click "My Computer" and click "Manage" and have the computer management window open up for you?

XP expert :lol:

For your information I'm an XP expert as well, not to mention an XP programmer - I've just moved on many months ago :o

Please don't call me a nerd.  That is pejorative.  Anyway, my 35 hours awake is at an end.  Good luck.

Cool... Create a new user account in the management window and log in as that user.

Then try a system restore.

Or you can enable the administrator account and use that.
