Websites such as that given in the first response are usually tricks to get you to download a registry cleaner (which you do not want). Best avoid them.

Use the advice given in post #2.

Please do not post then vanish - let us know the outcome

Derek, I agree that this site does ask to download something for the registry but the first paragraph tells the user how to fix the issue.

"You may be able to fix this by opening the registry editor and looking in the key entry [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.lnk] where you might see @="lnk_auto_file". If you see that, change the value to @="lnkfile" and all should work again after a system restart."

Yes, fine, happy with the idea that the registry tweak might fix this issue.

That's if the original poster graces us with his presence again.
