For some unknown reason after rebooting my laptop clicking on any and all desk top icons always brings up the windows explorer search box.
What has happened and how do I change so that desk top icons point to the relevant programmes
Thanks

Right click on any of your icons that bring up the Windows explorer window and select properties then choose FIND TARGET, does it then show you the target. What version of Windows are you running, first impression is they could be left over icons that are left over after you have uninstalled the program, what exactly comes up in the Windows explorer window.
