Ya i tried that and the secondary way to fix it nothing happend! So i tried the fixreg thing nothing! Than i rebooted and now Mcafee works but nothing else?

EDIT
Ok i think i might have found something here! I was going through the toutorial and i went to this HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ FileExts \ .exe and found out that it says this

Name- Application
Type- REG_SZ
Data- notepad.exe

Is that data wrong? Cuz thats what the apps are opening with in notepad? Should i change it?
