Several issues are now plauging my laptop which runs on xp. Symptoms include some, but not all shortcuts showing up as LNK files, any exe files associated with repairing exe files showing up as LNK files, some folders showing up as LNK files, windows firewall settings will not open due to unidentified problems,add/remove programs will open, but won't populate, all programs list on start menu will not populate, administrative tools wont open, task manager won't open, and malwarebytes vbAccelerator sgrid error '0'.
None of my exe files would work until I went to tools>folder options>file types>new>file extension EXE<advanced>application. Attached at the bottom are dds files. Your help would be much appreciated.
