Hello Darkhorse,

You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may be able to help.

If not, then try downloading and merging the lnk (LNK) option in the tutorial below to see if it may. It restores the default associations for shortcuts.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

@Brink

Many thanks for your reply to my query, and for the suggestions to cure the issue here.

The second option was what cured it.

Very nice, and again thanks a lot
