Ok, something really weird happened the other day. :tazz: After rebooting my computer and when it finally stopped booting, I double clicked on my explorer shortcut icon on my desktop.

To my great surprise, my computer opened the property window for the shortcut. It did the same for every icon I clicked on insteat of opening it the way it usualy does. I rebooted the computer and everything was fine again.

I taught it would never happen again but the next day, it happened again... and again... I mean... what the!"/$%?% is going wrong.

I'm using office pro 2003 SP 2.

PLease help me, it getting really annoying

there are icons (MY COMPUTER, NETWORK PLACES) and there are SHORTCUTS (pointers to programs)

All of these, or just one or the other?
