Hi Enthusiast, The 80% of my desktop icons is with the problem , the only way to open one of those files are: Right click on the icon > properties> find target.
thanx for your reply

Right click on the icon, choose properties, click "Find Target" and then make sure the target matches the exe file you found to execute the program.

Yes, but once you find the path to the target you have to make sure the path that is in the blue highlighted box matches it.

Well since when you change the allocation of the hard drive it may mess with the files and possibly break them up, you could try doing a defrag, how did you perform the change in the first place?

Since this is such an all around problem, you might want to consider doing a repair installation of WindowsXP - http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
