I'm not sure what you were responiding to. Apparently the posting was removed. But it sounds like there's a file association problem. You can download fixes for particular file types here:

Most of the time it's EXE file associations that are corrupted but if you ran a virus scan then maybe they're OK. But you might try the LNK fixes since the desktop links appear to be bad.
