Microsoft Windows XP Service pack 2
Booted my desktop this morning and after all was loaded, my desktop icons do not load and everytime I click on any .exe, .jpeg, .mp3, ect. . .I receive the following error message:
Windows cannot open this file:
To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer.
What do you want to do?
When I select Manually select and press okay, I get the following list:
Adobe Reader 9.1
Microsoft Office Excel
Microsoft Office Picture Manager
Microsoft Office Powerpoint
Microsoft Office Publisher
Microsoft Office Word
Windows Media Player
Windows Picture and Fax Viewer
I've tried opening an .MP3 file and selected Windows Media Player and receive the following error:
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel.
I would greatly appreciate any help on this matter for my desktop contains all my work for school and I failed to create a back-up when I knew I should have. Thank You to all who can/may help.
