servin13, Instead of using Run choose Save then save it to your hard drive (maybe My Documents), then double click it to unzip it then right click the reg file and choose "merge"..

servin13, Go to that link and follow the instructions under "Usage instructions" for that exe fix. The reg file is the file that is extracted after you right click the zip file and choose exract all. then you would right click on the reg file and choose merge and it will merge the contents into your registry.

servin13, Since you're using Windows Vista you don't need winzip since Windows Vista has the ability to open zip files. Go to that file that you downloaded and right click it and choose
"Extract All" and extract to your My Documents folder.then that reg file will appear. Then you would right click on that .reg file and choose "Merge". This fix is for desktops as well as laptops.

the name of the file is exefix_vista, when I right click on it, this is what I get:
open
share
scan with spyware
restore p. version
send to
cut
copy
create shortcut
delete
rename
properties

I don't get extract all or merge, probably am doing something wrong right?

servin13, Something is screwed up, Try double left clicking on that exefix_vista file and see what happens. Post back with the result. I'll be here for a short time today.

servin13, I really wish I could help you but without knowing which files you deleted there's not much anyone can do. If you have a friend who is computer savy have them look at your computer.
