can't open applications-set associations error
The error message that I get: "This file does not have a
> > program associated with if for performing this action. Create an association
> > in the Set Associations control panel."


This comes up with almost every application I try to open, some I can get
around by right clicking and opening as administrator.

I read something about the system restore, however my restore points don't
go back far enough...I think it ocurred in December, when my daughter
downloaded AIM.
