    Hve you tried clicking Start, click Search and type *.ink then delete what is found, Of course if you mean LNK files as in "shortcuts" I would strongly advise against deleting them all as your Start menu is full of them.

    They don't seem to show up in a search. Am referring to .Ink files not the shortcuts. When I do a check up with Norton system works they show up and when I changed my documents away from read only they showed up, strange...

    if you're using windows xp, make sure you have it set to look at hidden files/folders while searching...maybe they'll show up then.

    .ink files are either
    Pantone Reference files (Corel Draw) or Mimio Ink files (electronic whiteboard, whatever that may be)

    I would bet it is indeed Link (.lnk=shortcuts) files you are looking for. .lnk is an always hidden file extension.
