os is ME, it started when i was trying to set a program to start with a short key. I was told to right click on the shortcut then properties and set the shortcut to a # on the keypad. At that piont it seemed to work ok but when i tried it it asked open with so i set it to that program. this didn't work and after a friend got done with it now all my shortcuts have an "e" (ie) on them and when you click to open them the "you have choosen to download a file from location.....".window pops up. This is with all my shortcuts programs etc....They all end with .Lnk Also when you right click to make a new shortcut it makes one with the .LNk I have tried all I know including system restore but even that does not work. I get restoration unsuccessful. Could this be fixwd by a backed up reg file? any help please.........................

Hi,

Scanreg /restore in MS-DOS will probably fix this.

Choose a backup from just before you tried this, and restore it.

Good luck!
