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:

Try a System Restore - click on Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

Select "Restore my Computer to an Earlier Time"

Pick a date prior to your problem (but not the oldest)

See if this helps.

if you have the xp cd

then just do a repair

that way you wont need to reformatt

just do microsoft updates after the repair is done

and you wont lose any data
