|Thank you for your willingness to help me with this problem. My son solved it for me with the following.|
After spending 7 hours trying to solve the problem myself, running System Restore, Migo Registry Repair 5, searching the web, at my wife's suggestion from 5 hours earlier, I called my son, and over the phone he had me back up in 15 minutes with the following:
Go to the start button and in the Start Search box type regedit, Press Enter
Select choices as follows:
lnk (Note: This is a lower case L and lnk is for link)
He had me right click on User Choice and delete it.
It was telling the computer to link executable programs in my task bar and start button with OpenOffice.
I thank my son and thank my God in Heaven! After I rebooted, the problem was solved!
