Has anyone come across the following:
My son's laptop - Dell Inspiron 1545 running Win7 boots normally, but all the icons on the desktop cause Windows media centre to load, eg, Adobe reader has a normal icon, but clicking on it leads to media centre, IE does the same etc.
The scenario is that clicking on an icon loads media centre, click on the X to close, gives a blank screen, and then media centre loads again, clicking to close brings you back to the desktop. Some icons have been replaced with media centre icons and some haven't. The Upshot is, that whatever program is clicked on, media centre runs. I can;t change the program file associations in control panel - tried it and it does not work. media centre seems to be running ok, ie I can play music via it, and all the iTunes info is there, but not iTunes.
If you want any further info, I'll gladly supply it.
