  1. Double-clicking .bat, .vbs, .reg do NOT work.


    This morning double-clicking .bat, .vbs, .reg etc do NOT work, although double-clicking all programs [ .exe and shortcuts ] do.
    I thought I would see if there is a quick fix for this.
    I have reset the default permissions etc etc.
    I don't want to spend too much time on this as I can just restore from an image.
    It would be nice to find an answer though.

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT:

    They all run directly from the cmd prompt.
    Very strange!

    :)

    Single-click or double-click?

    As the title says, do you single-click or double-click on your shortcuts to open your apps?

    I'm a fan of single-click, the only downside is that often when I click on a message in de list of my mails in Outlook it can open the mail in a window...
    Not always but besides that, single-click works best for me.
