Hi, i cannot open most of my desktop programs - sorry not sure this if this is a Windows problem or what, but i could really do with some help
.
For example, clicking Excel icon on desktop gives Error - application not found, yet i can click on specific Excel worksheets, and they open OK. Adobe, Powerpoint behave similarly, yet Outlook opens fine from desktop.

For Excel - if i go to C:program files/microsoft office/excel and click on excel.exe, it asks me what program i want to use to open it.

Thanks for looking,
Nick
