If the .LNK files doesn't work, this can be because the underlying .EXE association has been broken often by some programs improperly changing the registry
or the association in the registry can become corrupted.

If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. Click Recommended restore, and then click Next.
If there isn't a recommended restore point, follow the steps below to choose a specific restore point.
3. Review the restore point, and then click Finish.
