hey i was fixing something in regedit (that ehttpc? annoying problem) and i accidently modified one of the keys, it was under local machine>software>microsoft>windows>current version>url>default prefix...i accidently changed the default prefix to http:// instead of leaving it blank so now whenever i try to open a program it brings up internet explorer, that means i CANT open regedit to change it back :mad: is there another way to open regedit? i hope im not screwed here... (going to regedit.exe doesnt work either, it just trys to open it via internet explorer and when i delete the http part it trys to download it, basically i cant find a way to open this or ANY program, all .exe's wont open)

Have you tried a system restore back to a point before you played with the registry?
