Go into your Utilities folder and open Disk Utility. Select your Macintosh HD in the pane on the left, then select "Repair Disk Permissions". Once the process has completed, try rebooting and see if it resolves your issue.

SOURCE: Google Chrome removal

right click on any internet shortcut icon -> select properties and to the right of where it says Opens with: click "Change"

Now you'll be given a list of recommended applications

If you were using firefox it will probably be right there just click it then click "ok"
if the application you used before isn't there click "Browse"

If you want to use Internet Explorer just go to: My Computer -> C:\
-> Program Files then find the folder called Internet explorer, inside you'll find iexplore click it then click open

let me know if that worked ok for you

    My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.


    Hi dear,
    Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
    Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
    Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
    Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
    Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
    Click [Finish]
    Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
    Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
    Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
    Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
    Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
    Click [Finish]
    Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
    A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.


    then use it.

    if not resolve it

    then use following step ;-


    click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
    press enter
    this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

    bye take care
    good luck
