How can I change or fix .LNK file association on Windows 7

This answer was rated:

How can I change or fix .LNK file association on Windows 7? I cannot open most of my files and most of the desktop icons have changed. I've already tried going to "Associate a file type or protocol with a program" in the defaults section but nothing works.

Thanks for using Just answer.

Please follow the below steps to fix this issue,

Please download the Registry key for windows vista\ windows7 from the below link


unzip it, and run it. It will make necessary changes to the registry. Restart the computer and it should be fine.
