Explorer shortcut glitch (XP SP2, IE7)
A strange glitch for some time. Clicking a data file (.doc, .xls, .jpg...) from Windows Explorer will immediately open the file in the associated program. Clicking the same file from a shortcut to the folder on the desktop, however, causes Windows Explorer to become non-responsive and I am forced to end it with the Task Manager. Here's the twist. If I click the desktop shortcut with Explorer open (even minimized), the shortcut suddenly works fine. Close Explorer - dead zone again. Hmmm.
No question of doing a restore - it's been going on for too long. It's not a huge problem - just a huge annoyance. Any suggestions on what to look at?
Running XP SP2, Internet Explorer 7, 3.0Mhz, 2Gb RAM.
