Windows 7: manually installing the lnk patch

10 Aug 2010   #1

manually installing the lnk patch


if I want to install the .LNK patch (KB2286198) manually from a local drive (in my case it's "d:"), is it then ok to execute just "del d:\*.lnk, *.pif" from the command prompt? I mean, can I safely view d:\ in the explorer then?

Or will I need to delete .lnk files and .pif files from all directories or even from all subdirectories?

My concern is, I don't know if it's possible to have a special .lnk file in a directory, which explorer might try to view from outside a directory.

Thanks a lot,
