Hello John, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I suppose it really wants you to write something in Notepad.

It sounds like the associations for .lnk (LNK) and .exe files may have gotten messed up. If you like, you could download and merge the .reg files for the listed lnk and exe options in the tutorial below to restore their default associations and hopefully fix this for you.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
