      Point taken on alternate methods to handle my LNK problem. The first
      time I did it I put all the shortcuts and EXE's from my "oldsys" on a
      second laptop and used COA2 (from PCMag) to change the shortcuts there
      and then brought them back and replaced the original shortcuts.

      The reason I have to do it again is that I accidentally blew away these
      painfully rebuilt shortcuts when I set up a Junction so I could have the
      set of shortcuts available in three places (Favorites, QuickLaunch, and
      there original location) then tried to delete the Quick Launch version -
      suddenly realized that they were being removed from all three
      "locations". (still not having fully learned my lesson about the need to
      backup fully)
