Default Desktop shortcuts opening in Word...

From: "Mike"

| Just recently, URL shortcuts on my desktop will open in Word, rather
| than opening the link in IE.
| I looked at default programs & .url is set to open with Internet
| Browser. I've also tried the KB article,,
| but no help.
| If I go to the shortcut through favorites, it opens ok & have deleted
| shortcuts & sent new ones to desktop, but they still behave the
| same...
| Any other suggestions?

LNK files have been assoicited to Winword.exe, they have to fixed to be
considered executable.
