Hey there brady1988. :)

as u can see that error message comes up everytime when i try to open my internet shortcut

Unfortunately we can't see anything... :) I don't think the picture came out right, unless it's only on my computer...

Mmmm... I can't see what web browser you are using but I am assuming that it is Microsoft Internet Explorer (How did I guess? Well you have a problem! :) )

So just send through your screenshot so we can take a look at it and find out what it is... Sounds like it might just be a setting.

Also just to understand more clearly, is it only when you open a shortcut of IE?

Cool :)

Try remove it from your start page...

In Firefox goto:
> Tools
> Options...
> Main Tab
> Click "Restore to Default" or change to to something like "http:\\www.google.com"

> Close Firefox and reopen it, then tell me if you still get the error.

If you still do then I would recommend you re-install Firefox. Before you re-install it, make sure you uninstall it first!

Goto:
> Start
> Control Panel
> Add or Remove Programs
> Scroll down and select "Mozilla Firefox (x.x.x)" [x.x.x is your version]
> Click "Change/Remove" to uninstall

The uninstaller includes the option, "Remove my Firefox personal data and customizations". Select it... Of course save your bookmarks and things you would like to keep to restore later.

NOTE: This will remove your Firefox user profile data (bookmarks, passwords, cookies, extensions, preferences, etc.). So just backup what you need.

Then download the newest version of Firefox:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

Install and then let me know if the error still occurs.

Cool :cool"
