My son was working doing some schoolwork on my computer and now all my programs and browsers open Wordpad when activated. Couldn't reach System restore or any other program. I am running Windows 7 and hope someone can help.

See if you can do this for me.


1. go to start-search REGEDIT and hit enter

2  go to Hkey current user>software>microsoft>windows>current version>explorer>file exts>.lnk

3 under that,delete the file userchoice

3. Restart your system

4. See if problem is resolved.
