    Hello,


    I tried to unzip a file-I downloaded a couple of zip programs. I think I screwed something up-so I uninstalled the zip programs. I had changed a couple of things showing open so and so with default programs. Some of my programs are showing up like a piece of paper on my desktop. I can't open anything up, including my mail. I can't re-install them either. I don't know what in the world I did or how to change it.


    I have Windows 7, HP computer.


    Please help!

    Can you be a bit more specific?

    What were those "zip programs"? Where did they come from?

    What are the exact error messages you are getting when trying to open your applications?

    Can you show us a screenshot of your piece of paper icons?

    Have you tried using a restore point before you started removing things?
