    Hey, i accidentally changed the program used to open a .lnk file and now i can't open any files and shortcuts... I think i know how to change program but i don't know which program to use. i tried the ones who were offered to me (Windows Media Center, etc.) but of course they didn't work. I can't open my games (total war) nor internet explorer. Does anyone know which program to use?

    Try doing a System Restore to a date and time prior to doing this.
