Why shortcuts opens system32 folder

Hi
I just got my new laptop and i'm new to windows 7 and i noticed (in start menu) that all secondary shortcuts that shows in tasks expanding menu. Like if i press (getting started) it will work just fine but if I try to open (discover windows 7) or (personalize windows) it just open the system32 folder. And the same goes on with media player, messenger and sticky notes.

Hello B2w, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this issue with your shortcuts started may be able to undo and fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
