On my Dell dimension XPS B1000 Windows ME system, with Ad-Aware and Norton Antivirus, suddenly all shortcuts inoperative (desktop, start menu etc). NAV and other programs do not load at startup. All shortcuts suddenly show .lnk suffix. Cannot access any features in Control Panel. Can make some programs run by re-associating them with proper file. Suggestions? :tazz:

Sorry, I didn't see win me in your post...you're posting in the wrong forum.....

I would start by posting a hijacklog in the malware forum, and if that doesn't work, post in the Windows 95/98*admin forum....I may even be the one to help you there, but let's rule out trojans/spyware/malware (lavasoft and Norton will not catch everything--especially some of the more recent things that are moving around.
