Start Button right click menu shortcut won't work

Toshiba laptop, WinXP. Installed a new shortcut in Start Button context menu. Have it on a Compaq laptop with XP also and it works fine. I did everything on this one I did on the other one. The shortcut is Send E-Mail. When I right click and cllci Send E-Mail I get a box saying C:\Docs and Sets\RAM\Start Menu Access Denied! I'm logged in as RAM yet it won't go into my folder. ;) The command in registry is c:\program files\outlook express\msimn.exe/mailurl:. Not knowing that much about how Windows executes the command I wondered why it was denying access to my folder and not going to the command given it registry. :)

As I said I did the exact same thing on the other laptop and when I click on it OE compose mail window comes up. That way I don't have to open OE every time I want to send an email, especially when I'm on the net. :P I can't understand why it works on one XP and not the other. But there is another diff I found when I tried to import the addresses into the Toshiba XP. The export on the Compaq was .csv file, but the Toshiba only listed .wab file to import. I imported is as 'other address book' and it said it imported it but I could never find it. When I tried to import it again it said it was already there, but I still couldn't find it. :) Couldn't understand why one XP is .csv and the other is .wab?????? Weird!

Hope someone here understands OE and working with the reg more than me. Thanks a bunch in advance for any help! :wave: :) :)
