I am having problems with program shortcuts on my XP desktop and Start Menu. I have applied the Windows SP 2 as well however the problems have not gone away. I have tried to run Adaware, Smit and Panda as well. Nothing seems to show any signs of Malware/ Spyware etc. The weired thing is that the link for Internet Explorer on Desktop and Control panel on Start Menu works. When I double click on the program shortcuts on the desktop nothing happens.

Here is my HiJackthis Log, I will appreciate if somebody can help me with this:
