Fix It can't help me. I have the latest Service Pack.
I also can't run any programs. example: malwarebytes.
I downloaded exe fix but I get the same popup message.
The popup tells me the parameter is incorrect.
When I was trying to take care of the first problem I went into the computer/properties/secutity area. I don't know how I did it but I removed Special permissions and don't know how to return it. I have all other boxes ticked. I think my problems are in this area somewhere.
I can't help you with any changes you made to Special Permissions - I have never used Vista and Windows 7 is somewhat different and I would say that with your posted experience you should not have ventured into that area.
If this is a case of permissions run IE as an Administrator (right click on IE in Programs > Run as Administrator and see if you are able to reset IE.
It would help to know why you feel that you need to reset IE.
I wanted to reset because, when I'm not yet in IE and click on a desktop icon it won't open. When I open IE everything is fine. I was trying to correct this problem by resetting and the more I tried the deeper in trouble I got.
