I am unable to click on any of my desktop icons and get to the webpages....I get a message saying "Unable to open this internet shortcut. The protocol "http" does not have a registered program." 2 days ago I had no problems with this but now I can't get anything to come up. Can anyone help me with this problem?
start>default programs>associate a file type or protocol with a program, scroll down (almost to the bottom) to HTTP, what program is set to open it up?, should be IE, or FF or chrome, or whatever browser you use..
Kenny, I did as you said but it says no extension or protocol selected and I can't find anything that says HTTP...I use Internet Explorer...any further help you can give me would be very appreciated....Thanks so much!!! Caregiver961
I see protocols but there is no HTTP listed on it......I have downloaded Google Chrome but it doesn't appear on there either......I use yahoo and internet explorer.....I just spent $300.00 to have my puter cleaned of viruses, Windows uninstalled and reinstalled.....this problem didn't happen until a week or so after I had this done.......any other suggestions for me.....I truely appreciate your help....Thanks so Very Much......Caregiver961
