    Hi ,

    Recently I scanned for viruses and cleaned my hard drive with a software product called SuperAnti Spy. This software did the job and then some.

    I cannot open software programs now like a new word document,
    RoboForm, Adobe Reader, Fotosizer, etc.... I can open up and edit an existing word document, but cannot create a new one. I cannot open "add or remove programs" in control panel, so I really cannot see what is still there or what has been uninstalled.

    When I click on the icons for any software program an "open with" box pops up asking me to find the correct software program to open the software.

    Have I wiped out something or do I just need to reinstall something that got uninstalled during the hard drive clean up process? I am not sure how to fix this and would appreciate any help or suggestions.

    Thank you ;)
