I've tried making new desktop shortcuts because the old ones won't work. Unfortunately, I get the same message on the new ones as I did on the old, which is: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel." Before, all I needed to do was right click an item in Favorites and "send" to desktop. I went to Folder Options in Control Panel and have no idea what to do.

Earlier today I tried putting most everything on desktop in folders and put the folders into "My Documents". Things like Email sites, TV Guide, IMDb get the same message, but I am able to acess office tools such as new spreadsheets, etc. What have I done wrong?

I would also like to know how to list things to NOT delete from cookies. I've done it before, ages ago, and can't remember how it's done. And I can't find how to "accept cookies" which GMail is telling me I need to do. I never told anything to not accept them.
