Just today i clicked on something, and then my internet icon was gone and was replaced with the media player icon. Then when i tryed to do something simple like opening up microsoft word it only opened to media player. Now almost all of my programs are like this, and will only open up to media player. But right now the only way i can access the internet is going throught different folders. and when i tryed to talk to windows support for this they wouldn't tell me what was wrong but, they told me to fix it that i needed to pay them. Is there any other way i can fix this?:confused: please someone help i'm a student, and i need my computer for homework, not just stuff to play on media player.

Go into your search bar in the start menu and do a system restore. See if that will help restore your icons to the appropriate actions.

THIS one if for Windows Vista.

THIS one is for Windows 7.

Open them all and you'll notice differences.

Do you have a Windows 7 DVD? If so, boot from it and run System Restore.

If you can't boot from a DVD, then you will have to try Phantom010's unassociation tool to get your executables working again. Then, run SR from within Windows.

I just tried the links that you's sent me and their not working, it just says that not all data was succesfully written to registry, some keys are open by the system or other processes.
