I've recently noticed that some of my file links have turned blue. I would say it started a few months back with only one or two blue links, but now most of my files have turned blue. I'm hoping that this sudden change is nothing, but I don't know what it is. I'm trying to clean my computer before school starts so I won't encounter any problems while I'm using it for school work. I've scanned and apparently, there is nothing wrong with my computer. I remember this happened a couple years back before I erm..crashed my computer and now I am slightly panicking. Can someone please tell me what on earth is wrong with my computer? If needed I'll take screenshots of it. Thank you. =)
Your files are not breathing well enough. Maybe the C02 level is too high. Kidding... Have you tried resetting your color scheme? A screenshot not showing anything private would be useful. Although compressed files in Winblows Explorer can be interntionally blue, I don't think that is what your scenario is...

If the box for compressed files is ticked, that's probably it. You can untick it and see if your files change colors (may take a few moments). If the box is not ticked, post a screenshot.

There they are! The first one is a folder on my desktop, the second is when I was opening a file.

Set theme to "windows classic"
You'll then need to recustomize to your liking the rest of the colors if you made any changes before.

Windows XP compresses rarely used files in the background...by moving it to the recycle bin, you uncompressed it
In Windows Explorer, click Tools > Folder Options > View > Advanced settings: Uncheck "Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color."
