Windows vista won't open desktop shortcuts or any .exe files. Instead "Open With" window comes up RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im running a PC with Vista basic. Following the 15/4/11 Windows update, I cant open any programme and cant get to any restore points. If I click a link in START/PROGRAMMES for any programme, a dialogue box opens saying "which programme do you want to associate with" - when I try to associate, the same dialogue box comes up.

    Can you help, or point me to the correct forum. Thanks

    Probably the best thing to do is to attempt a System Restore back to a time the system worked properly.
    For more assistance, you should post your problem in a more appropriate forum - the Windows 7 Answers Repair forum ....
