Open with problem

So just about an hour ago i accidentally made windows photo viewer my default "open with" program. That being said, i cant open the internet with windows photo viewer, so i started fiddling around trying to restore it to the way it was with no luck, my computer is brand new so im hesitant to do to much poking around. Please help it will be much appreciated!

Okay that is a little more tricky. Does this happen when you try to open any program? For example you try to open Windows Media Player and Photo viewer tries to open it.

Okay, start with the one labeled EXE in Brink's tutorial and see if that cures it.

Were you able to merge the .reg file?
