  • Question

  • Hello

    my files of .exe , .lnk files are not working I get a warning like `no such file supported for .lnk search the web`. Not any applications working in safe mode or in normal mode. I just made an update from sony vaio 2 days ago. Word,excel is working properly but the other files not working.

    I have no backup so It sucks. And I don't have my CD in Vaio. Is there any way I reinstall the computer or fix this problem?

    ( I prefer to format but I don't have home premium CD) Just the license key is there any way to find my Windows Premium data in HDD?

    Vaio F series Notebook model pcg841114L

    Thank You

  • Hi,

     

    Please understand when installing an update, the computer will create the restore point automatically. Therefore, try to find the restore point first.

    I suspect the issue is caused by viruses. Please also scan for the computer to ensure it is clean.
