    Ok, I had a program that for some reason vista didn't know what to do with. So it asked me what program it should use to open it. It was an .exe file. Well I clicked on a totally different program, a converter program, accidentally. So now, if I try to click on anything, weatherbug, computer game, my yahoo widgets, it will open the converter. I can't figure out how to fix it. If I download a program through the internet and try to run it, it opens this converter program. I don't know what I need to click on to get everything to go back through what ever it is they need to open with. I don't know how in the world I totally messed up my computer with one tiny miss click. I am about ready to lose everything with a total restore.
    Oh, and that reminds me, it won't let me restore to a previous time at all. So am I going to have to wipe it clean and start over?
