I cannot get any program on my Win7 PC to start by double clicking the icon on the desktop, which incidentally have all turned into blank rectangles. With most of them, if I try, it shows me a list of programs and asks me which program I want to open the exe file with! Some programs just give "cannot find (name).exe". However if I find a file that uses one of these programs (for example a .doc or .jpg file), double clicking it will start the program. However, I cannot start System Restore or connect to the Internet.
I have found a registry edit file at (http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/19449-default-file-type-associations-restore.html)... should I use this?
