    Everytime i want to do something on my laptop (running vista) it pops up asking me to choose a program to run the app thorugh. It doesnt matter if i want to go on the net or anything it still pops up. Ive tried to run a system restore but it pops up for that too!!

    Please help me! Have i deleted a file path or something?

    Try this fix: EXEFIX

    Unzip the fix and extract the .REG file to the Desktop. Right-click the .REG file and choose Merge. Note that you need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

    Reboot the computer.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
