I downloaded FrostWire recently and it took over my torrent files, so I changed it back to BT as the program to open those files. However, when I try to change the file icon back to BT, there's a "restore" button (to change it back to Frostwire) in place of "advanced" so it won't let me delete the Frostwire icon. I even uninstalled Frostwire from my computer because I don't use the program, but I find I'm still having the same problem -- I can't get rid of the icon from my torrent files. When I try clicking on the "change" button my computer freezes. It also freezes when I click directly on torrent files (to open them in BT), as well as regular application files. I tried downloading the free burning software Ashampoo but when I clicked on it to install my computer froze. When the computer freezes, my desktop icons disappear and then it seems to reset itself. As far as I know it's only freezing with the torrents and application files.
The only changes lately were the FireFox upgrade, and a Java update. Can either of those cause this type of problem? Any help is appreciated.
