hi. My HP compac, on Vista Basic, seems to have its files mixed up, if i click on a programm to open it, [and most things in controll pannal] i get a dialogue box saying open with. [note pad, media player etc] also the mouse has stopped scrolling, this happened when i deleted adobe reader, as that was doing the same, taking over programms. hope you can help. ray.

Does this only happen to shortcuts? That is if you try to open a document, picture, etc directly does it open with the right file? And if you open a program directly (press Windows + R and type notepad.exe to test) does it open.

If so then you probably have a particular issue with the shortcut association.
