|My computer was just fine days ago but suddenly today all my pin programs on the start menu and many others were suddenly reduced to ".lnk". Everytime I try to run a program a Spybot window appears indicating that it is scanning the program trying to be opened. Nothing else happens and the program I am trying to open never opens up. Repetitive attempts to open other programs just repeats the same scenario. I have tried system restoring and nothing happens. |
I booted up my PC and Ad-Aware warned me of unauthorized file access, so I said "no". I then said "no" to another 40+ unauthorized attempts to change/access file & registry settings. All desktop shortcuts then had a ".LNK" extension. I can find shortcut targets, but ".EXE" files don't work.
