Thank you for your reply, but I dont know how to do it aside from the fact that I dont know the file extensn for each program that is affected by the problem. Also there is a lot of programs that are affected so it will take so much time to do it.
Is there any other way that I can do to fix all the problems at once?
Thank you very much.
