    Hello again guys, I cant open shortcuts from desktop without getting this message: Windows cannot find 'c:\documents and settings. I had to put links into bookmarks to avoid this error or message. The pages will open but just wondering if something is set wrong or do I have some kind of other problem. Plus I get Script errors sometimes. Any ideas? Thank You, Joe

    What is the exact message, including punctuation?

    Is it only shortcuts that do this?

    Try a LinkFile File Association Fix.

    I don't see anything there about a link. Give it a try for starters.

    Are the shortcut icons all right?

    The "shortcut" you gave as an example is a web site URL, and so is not the same thing as a shorcut to an application on your computer. Do all your shorcuts do this, or only those to web sites?

    You may need to try the UrlFile File Association Fix as well as the other if both types of shorcut are affected.

    A reboot or restart of explorer.exe may be necessary to see any changes.
