✔ Best Answer
Maybe you didn't go back far enough when you did the restore.

Go here and try the EXE fix:

I am unable to try the EXE fix, as I am unable to download this as it still opens the UTorrent file. I am afraid to uninstall UTorrent as I don't know what will happen. Would you please let me know if this is what I should do? If I do, what will then be my default folder option? I fear that I may have to go back to Factory Settings and start all over again. My files are backed-up on a portable hard drive but, I am not sure how easy it is to start over and restore from the portable hard drive.

Thank you for your reply, await to hear from you.

Download the EXE fix file on another computer, put it on a flash drive or CD then run it from that on the faulty computer (double click the reg file). I am still hoping to avoid a more drastic approach.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
