I am attempting to repair my file type associations...(starting with .exe) . They were broken this morning after I ran a spyware scan/fix and installed Norton Anti-Virus 2006.
I was given this link to perform the fixes using the registry editor:
However, when I attempted to import the file into the registry editor, I get the following error message:
Cannot import C:\Documents and Settings\default\My Documents\WinXP_EXE_Fix.re
g:Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes.
Any ideas what I can do to fix this???!!! I'm extremely frustrated.
Someone suggested doing a system restore, but I can't even do that because my .HTML file association is also broken and the calendar won't appear so that I can select a restore point.
