I have Windows XP Professional and recently most of the file extensions have changed to .LNK.
The problem started after down loading a free App for Google Chrome, which installed a tool bar & a search provider called "Funmood", which is kind of Malware Or something...!! I couldn't get rid of it. So I decided to uninstall Google chrome and use "cc cleaner" and "Avast", "Norton 360" & "Spybot Search & Destroy" to eliminate the virus. No luck.....
I could not install any updates or any new software after that.......After working on for a while, I am able to install some updates, but not google chrome. I get error messeges. Some of the files which has .LNK extension......I access by right click & going to target File and access it.
I have read some solutions posted such as going to ...... Regedit\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\Filext\....and checked all the extesions with my lap top and they seem ok. I don't know how else it could be done.
I would greatly appreciate anyone's help.
