Specs: Windows XP
My operating system is windowsxp home edtion desktop icons and files files change to only in one format which is the .ink file. This happenend when I downloaded a free Anitvirus software and then while I was downloading it I prompt to restore a backup on my PC. Eversince then my PC icons, programs, sofware and some files changed to .ink files. I already tried to restore all files from a previous version but it does not work. I have to right click properties and change the icons to use some porgrams. I read a post about this matter but I do not see any updated answers for WINXP users. I am also unable to extract files correctly. Please help!

techgl, Try the LNK and EXE File Association fixes at the link below. If you can't extract zip files you may need to download and run the ZIP File Association Fix first.
