Shortcut links are changed to one type..

 sravs -
all the shortcuts in start menu and on desktop were not working. once i open a file which is a blank file( may be its related data may be missed), that time it can't be opened directly so i use right click and select a random program(firefox,adobe,notepad....) to open it. Then all shortcut icons are also changed to same program i used for above file. now if i click on any shortcut a window called "open with" is opening to select a program. But i was not opened. this problem include all shortcuts in start menu and desktop.....

please slove this.....
