You can change the file association back to unknown. You have to do this by using "Default Programs" through control panel or by clicking the start button then selecting Default Programs. When default programs opens, select Associate File Type or Protocol. Scroll through the list to find .lnk. Highlight it then edit to change.

That is correct, the setting is per user. Each user can set their own preferences for file associations and default programs.
Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 both are per user File Associations and Default Programs. On Windows 2008 server, the problem extends further when RDS (Remote Desktop Services) is enabled or Citrix Xenapp is installed in addition to RDS for multi-user environments. Unlike Terminal Services of Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 server, file associations cannot be set for all users with the administrator account, they must be set per user. This is usually done more effectively for large numbers of users by Active Directory group policy or through domain logon scripts.
