Every time I double click on a program icon shortcut in my desktop, I get a message:"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed" and it shows the path of the program, from my C drive, such as C:Program Files...

It is funny, though, that I can open the programs when I go to "My Computer" in the Start button and go to Documents and Settings, and open my folders and double click on an individual file of any application. For example, if I double click on a .doc or .xls, or .dwg, etc., it will open the file with its correctly associated application program. But when I try to launch the program from the Desktop icons or from the Program Files folders, it associates every one with Adobe 6.0 and I get the message I describe above.

Can anyone help? Has anyone had this problem? If so, how have you solved it? I am afraid to lose my data. I have already gone into each folder and removed anything that says Adobe (I think, unless it is hidden somewhere).

I have heard that if I download Adobe fresh, the problem will go away, but I am afraid to do so and lose my data.

Thanks for any help.
