" Would appreciate any answers"... well, I don't think you will appreciate mine, but with the info you provided, I can't imagine even hazarding any kind of guess.

"...This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action...". WHAT file? WHAT action?

"...when I had a problem on the net...". WHAT problem?

See what I'm getting at?

Sorry if I was vague.When I was on the net it froze and would not do anything so I used ctrl,alt delete and when the windows task manager came up I clicked end now.Then message came up that asked if i wanted to send error to microsoft.I clicked send now.Then message came up sent message and on this message was in blue "more information" clicked this (in the past when ive done this it take you to a microsoft page detailing what has caused the error and remedy) But this time when I click it for more information comes up with "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.go to folder options panel to do this.Hope this explains it a bit better Impatient

I am just wondering if you ever disabled the Remote Desktop Help Session Manager service, perhaps for security reasons. The XP default is Manual.

Even if it is not that particular service it does make me wonder if there is some similar service that has been disabled.

You are still not telling WHAT you END-ed in Task Manager...
Was it an Application or a Service?
Was it just whatever was at the top of the list?
Was it your browser, if so, what "application" was being called by the browser?
Can you describe the circumstances of this "...problem on the net..."?
