    I was trying to delete all files in the Windows\temp file but was unable to delete fb_492(LCK file). I accidently changed the "openwith"
    program from windows shell commor to word pad. Now, I am unable to find the windows shell commor program(I keep getting a "file does not exist" error) to change the "open with" option back to its default. Where can I find this program?:rolleyes:

    Yes, I tried system restore using the previous day as my restore point. Also, I looked in the registry to see what files are associated with LCK and there are two files-AcroRD32.exe & SHELL.DLL. There are so many different associations. What is going on?
