Specs: Windows 7
Hello!

It's my fault for not reading what the pop up(something about "open with" ii think) said, I just clicked on "utorrent" icon and all of my icons turned into utorrent and it wont let me go on internet explorer! I don't know how to put it back to normal, I've already tried restarting my computer but it stayed the same !

The OP said that they couldn't get into internet explorer, so they cannot use that, Derek.

Oops, I'm either going blind or daft - thx RMT2.

On another computer download the exe fix from the list on this website:
http://www.winhelponline.com/articl...

It is a zip file, so unzip it and extract the reg file onto a flash drive (or a CD).
Copy the extracted reg file into a folder on your faulty computer and double click it.
OK all the prompts and it should solve your issue.

Seems reg files are messed up too and maybe others. There are various options but probably the best is System Restore (as per #5) then select a date/time before this happened.
