Since I removed windows antivirus pro I have not been able to open up programs from the desktop or from the file locations. When I attempt to open the "choose program to open this file" option comes up. When I choose the program to open with, which is the actual program that I am attempting to access, nothing happens. When I try to use other applications to open with nothing happens. For some applications that I can use internet explorer or aol to open, nothing happens. I know I am missing part are all of system 32 dll or at least that is coming up. I could try to reinstall widows xp, or I havve a registry fix to restore it, but I cannot restore it, because I cannot open the file of the repair tool nor can open a cd because it won't let me use any programs to open with. I This all began at the same time I removed the windows anti-virus pro. Please help. I don't know what to do.

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

EXE (lnk and regfile) Fix for Windows XP - #12 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
