Windows XP Crashes When Opening Files After Acronis Restore

OS is Windows XP Pro 32bit. The hard drive failed. Replaced the failed drive and restored with the latest Acronis backup. Computer works great except when a file is opened by double clicking. For example a document saved on desktop or my documents when opened the machine will lock up.

If the program is opened then select file open said file no problems occur.

I've performed check disk with no errors.  Thanks in advance.

Sounds like Acronis did not restore the Registry correctly.  This is one of the reasons I didn't trust Acronis later than version 8.

You might try this:

Restore the system again from the backup.

Boot the system.

Do a manual Windows System Restore using the last Restore Point created before the Acronis backup was made.

This should clean up the Registry.  You will lose any changes made in the system configuration after the Restore Point was created.

Then, in the future, use a different backup program.  You might look at Macrium Reflect; the freeware version is quite good.
