Is it just one file that you have this problem with? If you right click on the file can you see the extension for example .exe, .bat, .jpeg etc? If you can see that information and let me know the extension I can possibly tell you how to open it and fix the association.


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

Also, if this is windows vista, windows 7 or 8, you could try a restore point to a date before the issue occurred.

hi, I have vista home edition, when I open an email, ie, for ebay or facebook, etc, and try to click on the link, that msg always pops up, right clicking doesn't bring up those extensions you mentioned, I  also tried a restore point before this began but it still didn't change anything, when the computer came on again, I also had 2 msg boxes saying multimedia keyboard driver stopped working

 

thankyou

It sounds like the default browser has been changed, have you installed google chrome or firefox recently? Have you uninstalled google chrome or firefox? If you use Internet Explorer we can quickly reset that to the default browser following these instructions:

 

1. Open Internet Explorer

2. Click the settings button at the top right and click Internet Options. You can also do this by clicking Tools>Internet Options from the menu bar.

3. Click on the "Programs" tab (2nd tab from the right).

4. There should be a button that says "Make Default" Click this button. There is a check box under the make default but slightly to the left that says "Tell me if Internet Explorer is not the default web browser." put a check in that box.

5. Close internet Explorer and re-open it. Try to click on your links again from email.

I am not certain if this will get rid of the multimedia keyboard. Is it an onscreen keyboard that appears on boot? You may have to change accessibility settings. Accessibility settings are: start menu>all programs>accessories>ease of access>ease of access center. There you can see which ones are set to start (if they are highlighted or have a blue line around them they auto start). You can click on them to enable or disable.

The keyboard issue looks like it is probably related to the driver itself. Is it a logitech keyboard? Is there software that came with the keyboard? I would start by trying to re-install the software for the keyboard.
