    I'm not exactly sure how performing a System Restore would have any effect on the presence or absence of your space bar...? :confused:

    No. I just do not want to lose Firefox, though.

    You can always reinstall Firefox for free, and if you want, save all your bookmarks as an HTML file so they're easily replaced when you reinstall.

    If you're interested in doing this, I'll advise further.

    Yeah, but if I get it back... when it opens, will it open with notepad? :O

    Depends on if the System Restore fixes the problem or not.

    I feel we are banging our heads against a brick wall with GumWad if they are not going to carry out our suggestion of System Restore.. :(

    Try this fix: LNKfix

    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.

    If still no luck, perhaps you could try Unassoc.
