Re: desktop Internet Shortcuts :(
[Crossposted to IE General]

In order:

1. Start | [Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs | ] Set Program
Access and Defaults | Configuration that's already checked | Select a
default Browser: Select "Internet Explorer" here.

1b. Now check your settings here: IE Tools | Internet Options | Programs |
Default web browser.

If no joy...

2. http://www.oehelp.com/ielnk.aspx (ignore the references to Outlook
Express)

3. Does this behavior persist if you start IE7 in No Add-ons mode? To start
IE7 in No Add-ons mode:

- Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without
Add-ons; or

- Start > (All) Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet
Explorer (No add-ons).
