Desktop Shortcuts Fail, IE 7.0, Vista Business
I have a new PC with Visa Business and IE 7.0. I frequently drag URL's from
IE to the desktop. This capability was working but now when you drag the URL
to the desktop it creates an ICON but it does not contain the URL. When you
clisk on the icon the error message is "The target of this Internet Shortcut
is not valid. Go to the Internet Sortcut property sheet and make sure th
etarget is correct". I have found I can temporarily correct the problem by
deleting the profile and create a new one. It seems to occur over time for
other profiles on the same PC.

I think this behavior is associated with the protected mode in IE7.
Instead of dragging the URL to the desktop, right click in the web page and
select Create Shortcut from the context menu.
