    I was installing Norton Security and it locked up during install.
    \
    When I rebooted, Norton had changed all my files extensions from exe to lnk

    As a result none of the programs or files work. After reading a lot, I tried to

    restore my registry. Since Norton changed the files, any command in run does not work. I comes up with a dialog asking for a file association.

    Any one with an answer, I would appreciate very much.

    Thanks;)
