Incorrect default program settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Media player attempting to open programs including .exe. commands. Therefore, I can't enter "set program access and computer defaults" to change because media player tries to run program. Various programs on the desktop are labled with media player icons incorrectly. Any ideas how to restore settings?
