When clicking on Internet Explorer icon on my desktop I receive this message: Internet Explorer cannot find 'file:///C:Program%20Files/AOL%20Toolbar/Welcom.html:make sure the path or Internet Address is correct.

I receive the message twice before computer finally populating a Internet Explorer window with my yahoo and google toolbars. At that point, I have to click on either the Yahoo icon or google icon to receive my homepage.

How do I fix this problem?

What version of IE are you using?

Did you have the AOL toolbar installed and then remove it? It sounds like an AOL site was your homepage and since the toolbar has been removed the path leading to that page results in an error message.

For IE6, right-click on your IE desktop icon and under the General Tab, what does it say for home page in the address box? If it has anything with AOL listed, click the Use Default button below. Then go to the home page you want to use, click on Tools in the top Menu > select Internet Options and under the General Tab, click the Use Current button.
