Having problems with your Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop ?

My desktop shortcuts open with search results page only

\015 Xp (home) sp2 with 'FreshUI'.\015\012Shortcuts I put on the desktop e.g. - games shortcuts folder, xtra documents folder etc.,( but not windows 'my computer', 'recycle bin' shortcuts etc.), always open with a search results page with the name of the shortcut in the "look in" window, and when I press the "search now" tab, the contents of the destination folder is shown in the right-hand pane. Pardon the pun, but this is a real pain. Can you let me know how to fix this. I tried several ways of putting the various shortcuts on my desktop - r.click, send to desktop as shortcut, - r.click, create shortcut and drop/drag to desktop, - r.click, create shortcut,r.click, move to folder (desktop).\015\012Cheers, Bryan Farrow\015
