Hi a small basic file was saved and we think the member of the family changed something in setting when saving as now dropbox, microsoft office Crome and other programs now have the small basic icon on the desktop and when you try to launch program the open a small window with small basic icon and unreadable symbols in the window.�^.�^'��^/�^'��^/�^'��^?�^.�^�^'��^<�^'��^/�^'��^/�^'��^/�^Rich.�^ How can we change back to launching the programs as when i right click the list gives the open not open with not sure if it is vista as i cant access the computer right click properties as is does the same trick. Please help if you can what can i do? Thankyou
