Solved Computer Won't open any files

November 4, 2011 at 17:37:55
Specs: Windows 7, 2.2Ghz 4GB RAM
When I try to open any program on my computer windows media center opens up. I was able to use a link to an internet site to get onto the internet so I can open files within a program, but I can't open the program directly. Also windows media center is opening automatically and opens up again when I close it.

Hello, I have the same issue as smokeyhoky on my in-law's laptop - she got some media center virus, everything you do on the laptop starts media center. I can't even do anything in safe mode. I would like to run this fix, but I have to run it from the command prompt, how would I do that? Thanks in advance!

Yes, but can you get the download file (Default_EXE.reg) across to the dud laptop?

If so, this should work from the command line:
regedit "default_exe.reg"

Alternatively, double click the downloaded file from Windows and see if it will run. If not change its extension from reg to cmd and try again. Viruses often stitch up reg files to prevent them running but forget that cmd also works.
