JDownloader is used for rapidshare and the like, right?

Does it affect all apps or just this one?

Hello Da Ripper,

If this happens with all shortcuts that you have or create, then you might see if the lnk download in the tutorial below may be able to restore the default associations for shortcuts (lnk) for you.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
