Hello,

... or something. Yesterday I tried opening something and that little thing came up saying windows doesn't know what program to use select from this list or look online, you guys know the message. So I picked firefox because I thought it could be opened online. It didn't work, but I got that problem fixed. My problem now is that everything has a firefox icon on it, google chrome everything, and when I open anything, it goes to a new tab on firefox and says you have chosen to open a binary file, gives the location and asks if I want to save it.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

Hello

Try this:

1. Open my computer

2. Go to tools, folder options

3. Select "show hidden files"

4. Uncheck "show system files"

5. Go to each drive by right clicking Explore only. DO NOT double click drives.

6. Delete the file with the name "autorun.inf"

7. Restart computer
