NEED HELP -- all links corrupted!
Posted on 1998-08-24
Something funny happened to me -- all the applications seem
"disconnected". By that, I mean whenever I click on an application (say Word), I get the dialog box you get when you use the "open with" option by using SHIFT+RIGHTCLICK. I have no idea what happened but the only odd-balled thing that I did an hour before disaster struck was that I was editing the preferences on Netscape and tinkered with the Edit Preferences|Navigator|Applications and removed a few of them. After that, I was using Powerdesk and while doing a transfer it crashed. I rebooted and that's when the fun began! I can launch all the apps I need by using MSDOS and launching them from within DOS. It seems like all the links are broken with the icons being replaced by a generic Windows icon. Oddly, some application icons are intact. Also, I have the executable for Outlook right on my Desktop -- it works.
I'd appreciate any help -- I'm clueless.
