Solved This file does not have a program associat...

Specs: Windows Vista
i managed to get rid of Vista Security 2012, but now it would seem all my file extensions have been screwed up. i dont know how to fix it, and im currently looking up on how to fix them all. i can barely open anything on my computer, keeps saying "This file does not have a porgram associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel." on almost everything, and only way i can open something is if i can find a way to open it with "run as administrater". i have tried using "system restore" and it didnt really do much of anything to help me. can someone help me resolve this problem?

i have found some ways to work around most of the stuff that i know of now. looks like only thing that is wrong is i cant open anything through "open" which is used when i double click something. i have figured out i can use Shift+right click to desplay "run as", and then open things like that. just no double clicking to open applications, but when i start up my computer, only the basics automaticly start up... idk but would seem i barely have anything up, have to manually start things... but cant figure out why it is doing this.

staylor, Did you download the "exe" fix and save it to your hard drive then unzip it and either double click on the .reg file or right click the .reg file and select Merge? You may need to restart your computer for the change to take effect.

Note: DON'T click on the big green "DOWNLOAD HERE" button as that will download a Registry Repair program that you don't need.
