GeneEP, It wouldn't hurt to try the exe file association fix at the link below then restart your computer. If that doesn't correct the problem try the lnk fix. Usage instructions are on the page.

Thank you for your suggestions. I tried your first suggestion, could not discern the second. However, after seven hours, I turned the computer on and everything is back to normal s/c icons. Voila! I had tried to go back to several earlier system restore times that would not work last night. I am amazed by the turn of events but thankful the problem is resolved!
