Adriangent@aol.comHi, I cannot open my files, photos, zipped files or pdf file that I have on my desk top, every tries to open in photo gallery for some reason ! I am running windows vista. Adrian.


Well, first I would try using the built-in utility as seen here.
http://ask-leo.com/where_did_file_associations_go_in_windows_vista.html
If that doesn't work, you will need to modify the registry. Be careful doing this!
1. Click Start Menu, and then type regedit in the Start Search and press ENTER.
2. Navigate to the following registry branch:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurre ntVersionExplorerFileExts[ext]
Replace the [exe] with the actual file extension that you want to restore its file type association to revert back to original Windows Vista default. If you unsure, simply browse through all the sub-key under FileExts.
3. Delete the sub-key named UserChoice.
4. Exit from Registry Editor

If this helps, please rate this answer.

I could not get my sylvania netbook to connect to my wifi so i download the update from their website to a SD card then opened on the netbook and it deleted everything on the netbook. how can i restore it...


I do not know why your icons disappeared by running the Download, but your programs are still in the on board ROM memory and what you are missing are your desk top icons. I have tried to duplicate your download problem but so far have not been able. I know that using a SD card will not download a usuable file so I used a thumb drive.

Any way please read the following solution that I wrote to another poster.

If you have deleted the icons for those programs on your desk top, then they may be in your Recycle trash bin. double click on Recycle Bin look for the icon for recorder, right click on recorder and select restore. You really cannot delete the programs from your machine as they are retained in a ROM chip , hard coded into the chip and are loaded each time you cut your machine on. The only thing you can do is delete the icons on the desktop, which are sent to the recycle bin.
To retore the machine to factory settings, there is a small hole just about an inch down from the data plate on the back. Using a pencil point or a straightened paper clip, insert the bject into the hole and hold for about 5 seconds. Your deleted icons are not replaced.
A second method to restore your icon is to click on my computer right click on the recorder, select copy, dismiss my computer, find a blank spot on your desktop and right click on that spot, select paste, and a dos type icon appears as your recorder button. When you cut the machine of and back on the Dos type icon is replaced with a CE type icon
To restore all icons:
You can: If you can click on start, click on run, type desk top into the open space and ok it. your icons should be shown. you will have to copy and paste each one back to your desk top, or select edit and then select select all, then click on file, select send to, and select desk top as short cut.

My desk top icons has dissapeared when i restore my pc what can i do to show my desk top?


well, if you are able to see your taskbar but not the desktop icons than right click on desktop screen and click on view and select show desktop icons.

and if you don't see anything on your screen than press (ctrl + shift + escape) together, it will open up a task manager, then click on file at the top and click new task, type explorer.exe and click okey.. this will help you in getting your icons back on your desktop screen.
