I tried to download a program file using IExplorer - big mistake. I followed the help instruction that are with IExplorer so I could do this file download - even bigger mistake. Following the instructions, I opened up file type, selected application and it edited my application properties, putting in the .exe file from the program I was downliading. I got back most of the system but not all. By putting the instruction where it asks for "application to perform the action"- C:\msdos\windows\system\command\start.exe - I can get programs to open (albeit they show a command window first and then the program opens). I can not get things like the settings under my computer/control panel to open.
When I go in file type, I need to know the "application that performs the action". I have checked with others running Win95 and their systems won't even let them edit this file type, so I can't even see what this should be. Can someone tell me what this should be and how I can protect it so I can't screw it up again. PS I plan on using Netscape from now on.
