XP Pro (SP2). I've noticed that all of a sudden, and only recently too, the
names of many of my files appear in blue text when I view them in Windows Explorer. Not all files are affected, and it seems that ANY file type
can be affected. All the files open as normal and behave as normal so this blue
text doesn't seem to have affected the file in any other ways, so it's more of a
mystery than a problem (and it's beginning to annoy me now because I can't
figure out what caused it). Any ideas about what may have caused this and how I
can fix it?
