Posted this earlier in HJT log section as a reply, but feel more appropriate in this forum.
Problem is: From search bar in Google (search engine I believe is irrelevant to this issue) I access web page (as an example I go to www.ebay.com), home page opens, I click on File, Send, Shortcut to Desktop, and then close page. Then go to Desktop, click on newly created ebay icon to open, and get the following address: http://-url "http://.../www.ebay.com/" along with the "Cannot find server" & the proverbial "The page cannot be displayed" messages.
Any suggestions to fix??
Thanks, Jewel

you may wanna stick it out with the malware topic to be sure that nothing is messing with your machine...but

right click on the shortcut on the desktop and choose properties make sure that the "url" box has the correct info ( i would assume that when you look at it it actually has http://-url%20"http before it...make sure it's just http://www.ebay.com/ with no quotes)

Actually, when I rt. click desktop icon & check Properties, the URL reads as it should: http://www.ebay.com/. The http://-url%20"http nonsense occurs (in address bar) when I rt. click Open.
