    I have not used XVI32 for 6 months or longer and suddenly I get a
    Script Defender warning,

    A request to execute a potentially dangerous script has been made:

    Shortcut XVI32.exe.Ink

    Have tried Googling for that but get zilch - any clues please ?
    Even stranger - I took an Irfanview screen shot of the script warning
    and saved it - when I open the .jpg pic. it opens fine, but then
    suddenly the pic. changes to being upside down - I would need to
    stand on my head to read it ?

    What happens if you browse to the folder that XVI32 is in and just click on the executable? Then create a new shortcut to the start menu (all users) or to wherever you want?

    Thanks noway - Tried that and no problems, opened the shortcut on
    the desktop without any dialogs popping up - just thought it was a strange
    occurrence and never heard of an '.Ink' file - I might do what I should probably have done after Googling, try filext I think it's called.

    Hi, MICRO

    The warning might be because the file has a double extension. Shortcut XVI32.ext.ink

    Take Care

    Thanks Quest - It's an .exe.ink - you probably meant that anyway -
    I just took a look at the shortcut properties but it only shows the .exe
    not the .Ink - I also checked at filext but they appear to only connect it back to M$ - Anyway I have deleted the shortcut off the desktop and will open the file from it's folder when I need to - see what happens.
