    .lnk

    Help !!!

    Loads of my Win2K files (including everything on the Start/Programs bar and desktop shortcuts) have picked up a .lnk file extension, thus confusing the OS about what app to fire up.

    What is going on ????



    Cheers

    .lnk is normally a link file, that points to a program.

    maybe you've got a virus - have you got uptodate a/v software? www.grisoft.com has free software...

    i've lost critical associations when using obsolete versions of windows before (especially on FAT32). loosing the folder and executable associations was the worst tbh

    not sure what to re-associate though :/
