You can try an online virus scan solution:

for example here: http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

otherwise, it might be a simple problem caused by the wrong association of file types and programs to open them.
Seems that somehow your association table got broken.
I dont know any automatic way of solving this ( it is easy to do by hand, but a tedious work)

think about doing a re-install of your windows.
ps: Remember to create a ghost image of the OS for later rescue. it saves alot of time.

I cannot open files on my computer that require them to be open by adobe which I have on both my laptops. The files save then you have to open them with a program but it trys to open with word which does...


I assume that you mean Adobe Acrobat reader. First of all make sure that you already have installed this program. Go at start - programs - and browse all programs to locate that Adobe Acrobat Reader existing. A good idea is to open it in order to check that it's fully working. In case of a problem download it from this official link. Since you are sure for the Acrobat Reader's existence, right click at any pdf file (these type of files open with Acrobat Reader) - choose open with - go at the bottom of the new window "choose program" - at the new window select Adobe Acrobat Reader (in case it is not available click on browse and navigate at the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader x.x\Reader, select the file AcroRd32, hit open - check the box for "open this kind of files always with the same program" - hit OK and you are ready. From now on every time you will double click at a pdf file the Acrobat Reader will open this file.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

How to down load anti virus?


Hello,

If you have the disc, insert it and just follow the onscreen instructions. Once it asks for the product key, get the cd casing and look for the product key there. Type it in and it should finish the installation.

However, if you don't have any CD. You can either download free anti-virus or purchase from the internet. Here are three of the anti-virus that I know. They are proven and tested to be of high quality. Just take a look at their websites to download the software from there. It's up for you to decide which one you would like to download. Remember, to install only one anti-virus in your computer to avoid problems. Just click on the list below to be directed to the site.

1. AVG Free Edition for Windows

2. Avira AntiVir Personal for Windows

3. Avast Home Edition for Windows


I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya.

How to restore the original dll


Steps
  1. 1Missing Dll files that somehow disappear can cause your computer to act in strange ways, such as not shutting down properly. A means to determine this is a system disk scan which comes with Norton anti-virus. For instance Norton has a good 'Windoctor' that makes repairs automatically. It is suggested that if one removes Norton anti virus for a free virus program, they retain Norton Utilities/ WinDoctor and Speed Disk for defragging.

  2. 2Always run a virus check on anything one downloads before they open it. Remove programs that one doesn't use or need. Too many programs clog up the machine. Do periodic defragging. Anytime one downloads or removes programs, music etc. plus the normal creation of files, it fragments the computer and slows and confuses its proper function. "When system files are overwritten, such as .sys, .dll, .ocx, .ttf, .fon, and .exe files, system performance becomes unpredictable, programs behave erratically, and the operating system fails".
  3. 3If it is determined that one has one or more missing Dll file(s) that can be identified, they can be replaced. Find on say Google, a site that offers free Dll file downloads. Look for missing Dll. Download and Unzip the file to desktop. For this you need Winzip or WinRAR to extract file.

How delete computar vairous


You need to have a reliable anti-virus software installed and run a scan then tell the software to remove the virus. If you do not have an anti-virus program installed you can find an open source anti-virus program at www.clamwin.com. This is a very good and free anti-virus program. Download it, install it, it will automatically update its virus database, then open it, go to the options and click on the option to "remove" malware THEN run the scan and it will clean your computer.

What you desperately need is an Anti Virus software. There are many AV software that are teeming up the market place. The software that are known to be standards in the Anti virus industry are McAfe, Norton, Symentec, Bit Defender, Kaspersy, NOD32 etc. but if you want something as good as these but free than Download it from the following link
AVG Antivirus Free Edition

http://free.avg.com/ww-en/homepage

After you install it Make sure you Update it. It updates itself automatically also. Make sure it does for future also.

Good Luck!
