Hi, I turned my other computer on this morning only to find that most of my icons were missing (converted to the no association icon) and I could not execute most .exe files. I can't access add/remove programs but IE7 works fine. When I double click on an .exe, the icon fades as if it thinks it's a hidden file. I don't think this is a virus, but an incompatable program. I installed restorator 2005 yesterday and I think it just installed badly. Also I can't execute Add/Remove programs and MSCONFIG won't execute either. Is there something in the registry that prevents .exe files from running?
