Solved All files and I cannot open anything...Windows XP

May 17, 2012 at 04:50:22
Specs: Windows XP
all files became .lnk? I'm using XP, nothing works. It will not let me open "System restoration" where I can roll back stuff. I can open control panel "folder" but then it will not open anything from there saying it cannot recognize the file and it offers me to look up on the internet or make a selection from a list to choose which program to use in order to open the file I am trying to open. By following the prompts I was able to open the internet and a few home made videos, however I have to go through the process everytime I need to open such files/programs. It will not let me open "HijackThis", "Spybot" or anyother tool like that.

✔ Best Answer
first of all, don't click on any more links to the internet, you are infected with malware.

I would suggest downloading unhide, rkill, tdsskiller, and malwarebytes to a disk on a "uninfected computer" and then while in safe mode running them.
