Hi, I'm running a Toshiba Satellite, less than a year old. When i tried to use it today, I found myself unable to open many programs, including Skype. When l would try to open Mozilla Firefox, a window would pop up saying "Open With" and then give a list of recommended programs, as well as allowing me to "Browse..." for a different program to open it with. It calls Mozilla Firefox firefox.exe. This is the computer's reaction when I try to open most folders, and as long as I select the same program in the "Open With" window as the one I was originally trying to open, it will work. However, some programs, like Skype, will only pop up with an error window saying "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe Application not found", so there is no way to open those programs that I have found. I'm currently running a virus scan, although this doesn't seem like any virus I have ever encountered. I am running Symantect Anti-Virus protection, which I believe is owned by Norton. Someone on another site said this might be a firewall problem. If so, how do i fix my firewall? ANY advice is appreciated. Thank you so much.
