Hi Brethren,

I made a change to .lnk extension in the association and after that I am getting all my desktop icons with .lnk links. All look alike and their original characters gone.

I can't open them and I had to go to my computer to open the word documents too.

I have tried repairs with MS Office 2010 but no luck. Shall I re-install my Office 2010 please?

Would I lose my .pst file as I have many addreses and information there?
How could I copy those addresses or open my .pst file to copy?

Try restoring your computer to a recent restore point. Type "system restore" in the search box. And choose a recent restore point prior to your changes.
