    "Open With" dialog box with IE.

    When I click in my short-cut icon(s) on the desktop to launch my web site(s) I get the dialog box which reads "Choose the program you want to use to open this file". When I then select Internet Explorer and tick the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click OK I get to my destination.

    But when I repeat the process of clicking the icon(s) for my site(s) I go through the same process again and again.

    It all happened when trying out Safari browser now uninstalled. The icon clicking worked properly with Safari but would not go back to working OK with IE.

    Any ideas?
