Desktop shortcut problem

  anniesboy68 21:19 29 Jul 2003

For some reason two shortcuts on my desktop relating to drives F&G keep becoming unavailable, i.e.corrupted, so in order to access them I have to go to My Computer and click on the relative drive. This is following a re format of the C drive Saturday. Does anyone know why this may be please

Delete the shortcuts and set them up again.

has anybody with this problem updated to the latest patch for nero burning softwear 5.51042?As this has happened to me after downloading them all.-My p.port iomega zip drive shortcut has done the same thing.

I think it has something to do with the latest Windows updates (I don't have Nero installed).

Have to say though that the problem was fixed for me by re-entering the path manually in the shortcut Properties, as mentioned in the other thread.

If you use XP, click here to see if it applies to you.

In my case?.

Having used my iomega program to remove the desktop shortcut by unchecking 'create shortcut on desktop'and rebooting pc then re-checking create shortcuts,it still didn?t work.

I had tried altering properties of the shortcut manually-the obvious one,it worked,but then stopped again after reboot(I did apply).

Gave up in the end by unchecking as above,and then created a shortcut manually,it now works.

As previously mentioned-no great shakes,but it is annoying.

Seicento-Thanks for info,looks like it is pointing towards windows updates as cause of problem.

Temp003-good find,although I?m a bit dubious on that,as it sounds as though its from an earlier era, from 2002.
