View Full Version : Corrupted shortcut Windows 2003 Server

28-07-2006, 02:30 AM

It does not matter on which icon or shortcut I click the result is the same. Microsoft Access is loaded and the file is interpreted as a database. The same thing happens when trying to load something from the run line. When typing cmd to get to the command line the sime thing happens. I use Windows 2003 Server.

Any help will be much appreciated

I can open any MS Office file in its correct application. Right click open with works fine for xls, doc, mdb, txt. My problems lies with the rest of the programs. Eg. nero smartstart or firefox or any other application for that matter. Even the control pannel icons when clicked uppon tries to open as a access database. I have look at the file associations. Exe isn't even listed.
