How about I make it simple:
Download and run:

Called malwarebytes antimalware; it's free. I use it three times a day. superantispyware is not bad, but malwarebytes will remove it in a quick scan without needing to go to safe mode. regardless, my suggestion download BOTH run BOTH in a full scan, start with malware bytes full scan after updating them both. then reboot and run full scan of the superantispyware as well, do this for every login. it will also fix the hijacked backround, and the missing tabs in video properties. which I can also help you with but it should do this for you automatically, also NOD32 will keep it out once it's removed:

First you need a program to open them with. PPS files are PowerPoint Shows which is a part of Microsoft Office. If you do not have Office, you can download a free PowerPoint Viewer at:

Also you can try to follow these steps:
    1.Click on Start and then Control Panel. 2.Click on the Programs link.

    Note: If you're viewing the Small icons or Large icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Click on the Default Programs icon and then click on the Associate a file type or protocol with a program link. Then proceed to Step 4.
    3. Click on the Make a file type always open in a specific program link under the Default Programs heading
    4. In the Set Associations window, scroll down the list until you see the file extension that you want to change the default program for.
    5. Click on the file extension to highlight it, once you've found the one you're looking for.
    6. Click the Change program... button above the scroll bar.

    The Open With dialog box should appear.
    7. Look through the options in the Recommended Programs area and choose the application that you want to open the file extension with when you double-click on the particular kind of file on your computer.

    Note: Chances are, the applications listed under Recommended Programs will contain the most applicable programs for this file type but be sure to look at the applications under Other Programs. You may need to click the v to expand the list of these programs.

    Note: Click Browse... to search through your computer for any program not listed that you'd like to use.
    8. Click the OK button on the Open With window. Windows 7 will refresh the list of file associations to show the new default program to open this type of file.

    9. Click the Close button at the bottom of the Set Associations window. You may also close the Control Panel window if it's still open.

    10. From this point forward, when you double-click on any file with this particular file extension, the program you associated it with in Step 7 will launch and load the particular file.

    Important: Whatever program used to automatically open when these types of files were launched will still open these types of files. To use another program, you'll just need to start the program manually and then browse your computer for the particular file.

MY WORD 2003 HAS ICONS WHEN I OPEN AND WHEN I TYPE THEY ARE OTHER ICONS


The icons and "Type" information are not part of the file. They are controlled by "file associations" defined in the computer registry. Here are several ways of adjusting the file associations
File will not open on double click - File Association

Note: if you have the Click-To-Run installation of Office Starter and you have "normal" installation of other version of Office you have to decide which version is going to have file association. Only one can be invoked by double clicking on file. Normally that would not be Starter.

Try repairing your Office installation, for example via Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.

I did something to my pc now all my programs have the extension .ink and i cant run anything or open anything what can i do?


The .ink files are shortcuts. If they have no icon, or the same icon then you deleted the programs. Try reinstalling them. If not, don't worry, just launch you application by double clicking the .ink files. If it doesn't work no worries, that's not a biggie and can be easily fixed in a couple of minutes. There are a couple of ways to do it, read both:
Option 1:

- Go to Start -> "Control Panel" -> Click on Porgrams
- Click on "Default Programs"
- Click on "Associate a file type or protocol with a program." to open the "Set Associations" menu.
- Scroll through the list of extensions to locate the .lnk file extension. The listing will show the description and the current default program associated with it.
- Click on the extension (to select it) and then click on "Change Program."
- Select the program you would like to open *.lnk file types.
- Click on OK.

Option 2 (If Option1 fails):

Simply download following file, unzip it, and run it. It will make necessary changes to the registry. Restart the computer and it should be fine.

Right click on file, choose Open with option, click on Choose program, and you can select from there Photoshop. If you want to open always with Photoshop, check option "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file". Clik OK, and..... that's it.

Excel may have "Ignore other applications" selected. See THIS Microsoft Knowledgebase Article.

Try going to Excel Options; Advanced tab; and under the 'General' heading: uncheck the box that says: Ignore other Applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).
