Help! I'm new here and am begging for help. Just to let you know I've read the "read this before posting" posts. I cannot run HJT, AVG or any other possible fix that I need to put on the computer. This all started with a few minor peeves. My search function no longer worked at first. I though - oh, well, no big deal. I'll reload eventually. Then my MySpace page got hacked and I was ticked off but after all - it was only MySpace. Now, however, I'm REALLY upset. Every link on my desktop is opened by Notepad. Every executable is opened by Notepad. Every fix, registry edit, antivirus, antispyware, etc., etc., etc. is opened by Notepad. I cannot do a "last know good configuration" because it opens with Notepad. I downloaded fixes that I thought might help but they (you guessed it) open with Notepad. I am totally frustrated -- can anyone out here help me?
