It could be worth removing Panda, then the connection and make a new connection, possibly re-installing the router software

Note all the access details before removing the connection

Hi Keith, remember me, im the panda dude, lol. My PC's just got a weird problem. ALL of the shortcuts (*.LNK files) are suddenly inoperative. It doesn't matter where the file is (Desktop, Start Menu, QuickLaunch bar). I'm sure that reinstalling Windows XP would fix this, but I'm hopeing for a little less drastic fix. Only a few programs, pictures and music seems to be working fine. I cant even use msconfig nor regedit. But the programs dont open heres a example:

Really i am suffering alot i dont want to reinstall windows for the 4th time

Run through these and check after each one to see if you have them back

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.

You can check for any improvement now, and then after each step until you have run through them all, if necessary


When it has loaded to the desktop, click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

This will take an hour, it will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.

When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete, then reboot

If no change, the next thing to do would be a repair install, this will leave data and settings intact

XP Repair

If you are unable to run XP Repair

Alternate XP Repair

Use the last one, Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method

Beyond this, it could be a hardware fault

The next steps are optional

Get Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Specifically, type sfc then space then /scannow to give sfc /scannow you need the XP CD, it will ask for it if it is not in the PC and you will get an on screen blue bar showing its progress

Sorry about not answering, the e-mail notifier didn't reach me

I hope system restore is on, if so run this and look for the most recent system checkpoint before the errors began

Start the System Restore tool at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up until you get options, select Safe Mode with a command prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:


%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for a recent system checkpoint to restore from

For additional information about the Safe mode with a command prompt, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
