I have two that use to open and run now don't

December 12, 2014 at 20:12:04
Specs: Windows 7, 1Ghz/256
I noticed that when I right click on the icon instead of open it shows "%1"%* where open should be. seams to happen after a windows update, It's happened before this time it's been a while since I used the programs. The were from my XP Pro system but they have worked for 2yr's on this system until this last year to 15 months.

When you get it working as a minimum run this freebie (green button top right):
http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...
(uncheck the free trial during install, you don't need it)

The reason for this is that this symptom is often caused by a virus or malware and the above program is good at finding and fixing what an anti-virus can miss. Otherwise you might be curing the symptom rather than the real issue. If it finds anything it would be worth pasting the log on here so that further action can be suggested if necessary.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
