Whenever I click on a shortcut within the favorites folder it opens up a "print window" Sad ?! (as opposed to opening up the IE browser and using the Favorites pulldown and getting to the url that way)

But if I select the same shortcut/url within the IE browser from the favorites pulldown, it works fine Rolling Eyes .

Any ideas ?

Thanks.

I'm really not sure... but have you asked you brain yet? Razz
Or maybe you computer is infected... I recommend you boil it for 1 hour along with 3 large, perky coconuts and a grilled cheese sandwich. Very Happy

Right-click on the mis-behaving shortcut and choose properties. Post the results.

Newtie,

When you right click on it it tells you where it's located and under the security/security tab it shows it as being "allowed" (check marks next to everything). There isn't much more to it than that Confused ?

You want I could e-mail one of the beasties to you !!! PM if your game. All my shortcuts behave the same Sad .

I've scanned the puter with all sorts of proggies for spyware and antivirus and cleaned off what little I found.

I know that there's a part of windows that links an icon to a proggie, that's where I think it's broken, but I don't know how to get to that part of win2K Sad .

Computer problems make me gassy Embarassed . For the sake of global warming, for the sake of the planet, for the sake of my trousers, please help !!!!!

So, I've got win 2K, and here is what I found:

Start-> right click on Favorites->open

in favorites window

tools->Folder options

file types tab

Click on File types column header to sort by that instead of by extension

scroll down to "internet shortcut"

for each one highlight and click "advanced"

highlight "open" and click "set default", hit OK

if you dont have an action that says "open" anymore, create a new one called "open"

put the following line in "application used to perform this action"
( I copied it from my machine)

rundll32.exe shdocvw.dll,OpenURL %l

hit OK


From now on, you must fart in the direxion of somebody else.

Glad to help. There is nothing that takes the sillyness out of a person more than a computer that's busted. And one of those taser guns, that would sober you up straight away too, I guess. Computers and taser guns and death. Oh, I said death too, that would stop the joking around for sure also.

Since Sir Latch wants those piccies so much, you can send them straight to him. I can Google "skidmark" If I ever get the urge for chocolate striped cotton.
