All the files are trying to open in internet explorer, its giving me a box that wants me to - open - save - or cancel and when i hit open the same box keeps opening and if I hit save it does the same thing, I don't know what I did but I messed this up and now i can't even open up my defrag without that box opening up...................I think I must have said yes to having internet explorer as my default reader or something and now I don't know how to change it back.
It's the .lnk files with all the problems
