i have recently been messing about makin some invites using publisher (not really used it much before)and now suddenly i cannot save or open any pic files when using anything else, everything is being saved as a publisher file but will only open a blank publisher screen! dont know what i have changed, any ideas ??

that you know the program with which it has been made > Right click > Select "Open with" > Select the program that you know made it > tick the box at the bottom left.

When you say "everything", do you mean Office documents? Or does "everything" include photographs, music files, that kind of thing?

yeh all photos and office docs

I'm sure that we can come up with a solution

Go to settings>control panel>folder options>file types and scroll down to doc, see what program is associated with it, if it is not Word, change it to word. Do the same with other files you have probs with.

to update - i ran the system restart and now the publisher icons are still on the screen but with a mini picture manager icon on the left of the icon. i can now open them but its still a bit weird!
