Yes, right click on one of the files that is opening with the wrong program and select Properties.
On the General tab in the Type of file section select Change.
Select the program you want to use to open the file from the recommendations or browse to the one you need.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

Restore system files and settings

System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. Typically, you want to restore your computer to a restore point that was created just before the date and time when you started noticing problems. The descriptions of the restore points that are created automatically correspond with the name of an event, such as Windows Update installing an update. System Restore returns your computer to the state that it was in before the restore point that you choose. To learn more about how System Restore works, see What is System Restore?




To restore system files and settings using a recommended restore point





  1. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.



  2. Click Recommended restore, and then click Next.
    If there isn't a recommended restore point, follow the steps below to choose a specific restore point.




  3. Review the restore point, and then click Finish.






To restore system files and settings using a specific restore point




  1. Do one of the following:








    • If there is a recommended restore point, click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next.






    • If there isn't a recommended restore point, click Next.








  2. Click the restore point that you want, and then click Next.




    To view the programs and drivers that will be affected (which could include programs that will be deleted), click Scan for affected programs.






  3. Review the resto

My preferred / default search engine is Google Chrome, but whilst searching for an online football game last night I inadvertently downloaded some software. This has now left me with "My Search Dial"...


Look in msconfig area for a startup file not previously there. Check it off. Ditto for item in services. msc file. Then type in the name of the file mysearch dial exactly as you see it in regedit and remove the sucker. Same for onlinegames. Hopefully you will get it like that. Also do a malwarebytes scan and get rid of all the junk it finds. That should do it.

In windows 7 home basic if i open any application it will be open automatically open windows media player what is reason


It does that because Widows points all files at Windows programmes.
You can change it quite easily by clicking Start the selecting Default Programmes and moving things around to other programmes.
Keep a copy of the settings befor you adjust them by clicking Start and typing Restore Point, follow the prompts to make a restore point that you can go back to if you make a mistake.
Win 7 is the first almost clever OS to come out of Microsoft!

Hope that fixes your quandry.

I have DG31PR Original Motherboard with the system. I have installed Two HDD in the system Now i Want to change the boot order without entering BIOS Setup. Is it possible to press some function key like F7...


I assume you're wanting to automatically boot a different hard-drive? If so, it's a real simple fix. I'll take you through the steps using Windows XP Professional. In the example below we will tell the system to automatically boot Windows 7 if the user does not make a choice in 30 seconds.

1. Open My Computer.
2. Open your C:\ drive.
3. At the top, select Tools -> Folder Options (Picture)
4. Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders," Uncheck "Hide Extensions for known File Types," Uncheck "Hide Protected Operating System Files." (Picture)
5. Locate "boot.ini." (Picture)
6. Right-Click boot.ini and go to "Properties." (Picture)
7. Uncheck "Read-only" and press OK. (Picture)
8. Open boot.ini
9. Find the line corresponding with the system you want to boot automatically every time your system starts. (Picture)
10. Place the system's path into the "Default" slot. (Picture)

NOTE: Only place the system's path into the default slot, not the boot options and description!

11. Save the file and exit boot.ini.
12. Once again, right-click boot.ini and go to Properties. (Picture)
13. Check "Read-only" and press OK. (Picture)
14. Restart your system to ensure the changes were made correctly and that your system starts the correct operating system.

CAUTION: Altering the lines below "[operating systems]" can change the way you system starts and might prevent your system from starting! DO NOT ALTER ANY ENTRIES BELOW "[operating systems]" UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING! Altering the "Default" slot will not harm your system as long as you enter a system path that is described in the "[operating system]" sector.


Altering boot.ini the way we just did tells the system to automatically start Windows 7 if the user does not make a choice in 30 seconds. Additionally, if you want the timer to run for say 1-3 seconds, you can alter the "timeout" value to read something similar to: timeout=2
That way when the system will automatically boot the "default" system in 2 seconds if the user doesn't make a choice. NOTE: Don't forget, you can't alter boot.ini unless "Read-only" is unchecked. Also, don't forget to check it again once you're finished editing boot.ini.

Let me know if this solved your problem, or if you were wondering how to do something else.
