I’ve recently had some troubles with .lnk files and I found this previously asked question with my exact problem….I was trying to get a program to open and I used Open with; I changed the *.lnk to open with the application and forgot to uncheck the Always Open With option. Now I can’t use any of my shortcuts. I know I should have done a backup as soon as I got my system, but it doesn’t seem to like any of the CD’s I’ve tried to use to backup. I can work on that later, for now I would just like to know if there is any fix for screwing up my *.lnk files?
I followed this link, http://www.winhelponline.com/fileasso/lnkfix_vista.zip
and it fixed the shortcuts on my desktop but none of the icons have gone back to normal! This is something I can live with but it is rather annoying and if anyone has any solutions I would really appreciate it!
