All the program icons - on my desktop, start menu, everywhere - are
messed up! They all turned into this one image, a white piece of paper
with the topright corner folded, and a box inside it with a red dot, a
blue dot, and a green dot. When I try to open them, it says "Windows
cannot open this file: Whatever the file is.lnk To open this file,
Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online
and look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of
programs on your computer. What do you want to do?" Then there are two
choices, 'Use the Web service to find the appropriate program' and
'Select the program from a list'. Choosing the first option brings up
this page on the internet (This is the only way I can get on and the
only program I can open) : http://tinyurl.com/cky27 , while choosing
the second option opens a window with some programs in it, and clicking
any of them doesn't do anything. Help?
