I messed up my computer last night and Im trying to reset it back 24 hrs, windows xp. But everything I try to do gives me the same prompt. all my icons on computer have the same image, i cant go to system tools or system restore, or even internet explore, the only thing i can to is use a google prog I have to get online, thank god. the message i get when i try to open anything is: WINDOWS CANNOT OPEN THIS FILE
TO OPEN THIS FILE WINDOWS NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT PROGRAM CREATED IT. WIND. CAN GO ONLINE TO LOOK IT UP AUTOMATICALLY OR YOU CAN MANUAL SELECT FROM A LIST OF PROGRAMS ON YOUR COMPUTER

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?
USE THE WEB SERVICE TO FIND APPROPRIATE PROGRAM
SELECT THE PROGRAM FROM A LIST



System boots OK OK, but can't find programs due to file extensions being reset to .lnk.
please help me please
