    it seems all my apllications are acting up so i have to use a seperate computer. i know its not a virus since i never accessed the internet but all my applications went hay-wire, if i double click for example: notepad, it tries to open up internet explorer then shuts that down and asks me to run or save the file application, either choice i make causes the screen requesting those two options to reappear over and over. it all started when i made my falloutnewvegas.exe try to open with the falloutnewvegaslauncher which was the only one allowing the game to launch. so after that every application has a internet explorer icon in the middle of it with a blank page.

    im at a loss of what to do please help!

    OK. Remember that even a machine not connected to the net can be infected by things you put on it. So be careful.
