Hi, I had this problem a while ago and I got this help from these newsgroups
and it fixed the problem.
You could try this although I have Vista now and this fix was for XP:
Open Windows Explorer.
Go to Tools | Folder Options | File Types.
Scroll down to URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol and select it.
Click Edit or Advanced, depending on your Windows version.
"Application used to perform this action" should read:
"C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\iexplore.exe" -nohome
(Check the path to iexplore.exe to make sure that is correct and use the
DDE should be checked and in the boxes below it you should have:
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy should be the same.
Sometimes it is necessary to uncheck Use DDE.
If that doesn't fix it, go to Start | Run and type
