    OK i dang gone dine summat stoopid. Messing around i deleted the LNK entry in the registry. Now all my shortcuts have .lnk as extensions and clicking one asks me what do i want to open this with.

    Being slightly clever, i thought i could export the .lnk entry from another pc and import into this one but that hasnt worked. So anyone got any ideas?

    Ok no worries now its fixed. I just exported the lnkfile entry instead of the .lnk and that worked!

    Lesson learnt? Never mess with registry while at work!
