I was checking all programs what happened is I gave a right-click on one of my program Avast and there was one option called “open with” and I by mistake clicked on Adobe Acrobat 0.7 and all my other programs were showing same icon of Adobe Acrobat 0.7 and all programs worked as one.

    Also do a full scan on your system. I've heard that this issue can often indicate you've been infected w/a virus so after you restore the .lnk association, do a full system scan just to be safe.

    Try Bruce suggestion. if you have windows restore point use it and revert back to just before the problem.

    Download and apply the Link Fix to your computer. It should take effect immediately but some systems don't recognize it until the system has been rebooted.
