Microsoft, in order to maintain their monopoly, developed the parasitic 
install process causing your problem. Please don't blame it on people 
working for free trying to solve it for you. The reason they are 
advising people with problems to delete defective links is because 
Microsoft provides users with no tools to determine what is wrong. The 
links were most likely broken before the upgrade. Installing a program 
in windows is like a fungus growing into a tree.
