Solved: Protocol http does not......
Error message when I click on an internet desktop icon. Win7/IE8.

"..................the protocol http does not have a registered program"

This happened after I removed Google Chrome (after 2 hours, didn't like it)....

Tried file types under Default programs, no http, found url = Internet browser.
Tried tools/advanced/Options/reset.
Tried resending the url to the desktop (File/Send)
Rebooted all these options

Still a problem. Thanks.

I don't know why HTTP was not under file types and protocols. Suspect that means the following will also not work ...

Control Panel - Default Programs - Set your Default Programs - select the browser you would like to open http - 'Set this program as default' or 'Choose defaults for this program' and then select HTTP under Protocols.

Did you only look at extensions, or did you scroll to the end and look under Protocols also?
