Hello,



All of my downloads have to open with some kind of program. I have to choose like google chrome or paint or notepad etc... And below all of the titles of my downloads it says "shockwave flash object" when i download like a .rar file or something. Somebody please help me. My brother may have messed this up, but he's not admitting it.

Again, what is the operating system ? To whom the computer belongs is irrelevant to me.

Go to the following site.

Follow the instructions at the top and use the .exe file association fix:
