IE shortcuts don't open

I'm have IE6 on an XP machine. Suddenly I can't open IE shortcuts. I'm used 
to opening from my desktop or from folders. Neither double-click or 
r-click/open work. Nothing apparently happens.

I can open from Quicklaunch or the shortcut in my start menu. Then I can 
open a desktop shortcut by r-clicking the shortcut and copying and pasting 
the url from the properties to the already open IE. I've created new 
shortcuts; they don't open either.

I've opened the task manager and watched it as I try to open something from 
the desktop. Something happens cause the CPU usage jumps up to 40% or so 
each time I try to open something.

any help would be much appreciated.

Word Doc from IE plugin embedding in Outlook with nonsense characters
The setup Windows XP Pro (not sure of SP at this time, but I belive SP 2) Office 2003 IE 6 The problem: We view automatically generated letters through the ie plugin for word documents. To attach the word doc to an email, we would hit "File -> Send -> Page by mail". Under older setups (Win2K with Office 2000 SR-1), the document would attach to the newly opened outlook message as a separate file, but under this newer setup the document gets embedded in the mail message body. This wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't for the fact that the body of the document gets padde...

Can't Open Excel File
I have a very large excel file (63mb) that I can't open. Everytime I try it thinks for a while and then spits out the error "Not Enough Memory."

But it's grown beyond what I expected it to be and I don't have time (right now) to move it into any other program. That aside, m...

Outlook 2003 won't open
Tried to open outlook 2003 as usual, but it won't open - giving an error message that the folders are not accessible. I've tried installing updates, and rebooting. Do I need to uninstall and reinstall Outlook? PS: Other MS Office functions like Word etc are working fine. Folders not accessible means that your .PST file can't be opened. I would use the mail applet in the control panel to define a new .PST file, set this new .PST file as your default delivery location, and remove the old .PST file from the profile. Outlook should start at this time and give you ...
