My machine which has on occaision behaved itself properly has now decided to attempt to drive me out of my mind. I do not know if this aberrant behaviour occurred before or after installing SP1 for Vista, but what it now does is this.
If I use the "Open With" option on any program it applies it to every icon on the desktop.
So if I choose say Open With Media Player, every program, even the shortcuts to the hard drives and email then try to open with Media Player, additionally all short cut icon are renamed with the addition of the word link ie C Drive become C Drive link.
I am hoping that the technical knowledge apparent in this forum might have an idea what is happening and how it may be fixed.
Tks for reading my ramblings, I think Vista is getting to me.
All and any assistance is greatly welcomed
