Q: I think my computer crashed. All my programs are corrupted and the logos are the iTunes symbol. I can’t open anything except for Internet Explorer. When I try to open other programs I get a message saying “Cannot Open File” and then it asks me too select a program too open it with? What can I do to fix this?

    Select the appropriate program you want to use to open the file from the list presented, and make sure the checkbox at the bottom to remember your selection is checked.

    You’ll need to do this for each file type, but it will take care of the problem for you.
