On my desk, all file associations have changed & all extensions have become ".lnk" instead of ".exe". So I can't run any program without going through 'my computer '.

When the problem persisted for 3-4 days, I thought to check the properties of the file "", & that's when I learned that even though she describes the file type as 'application', she has a ".lnk" extension I deleted the shortcut & set it to new, but who has not resolve it. I ran "anti-virus", & he found.
Whenever I click any shortcut on the desktop, it asks me what program should be used to open it. Yesterday, I clicked on 'Internet Explorer' & changed the option "open with...". "for IE. By mistake, I uncheck the box 'always apply for this type of files', at the bottom of this window. So now, each item on the desk trying to open with IE.
All I want to do is retrieve these files & extensions associations. How can this be achieved? Any help? Apart from this, the laptop works well as before.

Thanks in advance.


. INK files are usually created on a Tablet PC

. LNK files are shortcuts

Have you done something that their renamed? By the program files you mean DATA or the actual programs
What should you run? Data files can be renamed to the correct extensions.
