Specs: Windows XP
Can't open any program on laptop. Always ask what program to open with. Able to access task manager, I see explorer running as process but no internet open. When trying to open Explorer, select program to be open, wants to download iexeplorer to run. What I do?

Confused Dan,
See Response Number 4 in the thread at the link below.

Note: If you can't access the Internet with the problem computer use another computer to download the reg file fix onto a CD, thumb drive, or floppy and transfer the file to the problem computer.

After that .reg file is merged into the registry successfully restart your computer.

Thank you Tufenuf.
Very helpful.
Now the only thing I can not access is the internet. When I try to launch IE it just goes blank. I have run C-Cleaner but was unable to run Malwarebyte Anti-malware. It shuts the system down.
I have also tried the IEFIX from the link you sent me to.
Any ideas on what I can do next to get to the internet?

Try this, it may help if your IE settings were altered.

Go to start> control panel> internet options> connections> lan settings> uncheck the box beside "use a proxy server, etc." and check the box beside " automatically detect setting"> ok> ok.

Then try to connect to the net, if unable to connect restart the computer and try again.
