All files have a .LNK extension?

Post by Zócalo »

I have a problem with Windows. All my files have renamed their file extensions to *.lnk, is it any solution to fix that problem?

Try these simple instructions:
  • 1) Click Start Menu, and then type regedit in the Start Search and press ENTER.
    2) Browse to the following registry branch: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.lnk
    3) Click on the arrow to expand it and delete the sub-key named UserChoice.
    4) Exit from Registry Editor and reboot your machine.
Also use any antivirus software and check your computer for any malicious software that can cause this trouble/problem.
