It may be virus or spyware problems, so you should your computer scan with Malwarebytes.

ausn, Try the "LNK (Shortcut) File Association Fix" at the link below.

If that doesn't work can you do a System Restore to the closest date prior to when this problem started?
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.

If you want to get rid of them can't you just right click them and choose "Delete"?
