Hey peeps

After all my (as it turned out) virus problems i managed to use my reload cd successfully to reset my pc to factory settings so things are cool with the system at the moment.
The only thing is, before all my problems i could right click the internet explorer icon on my desktop and get access to the internet properties from the menu, however, since the reload, when i right click the icon i only get the properties for the shortcut and the only way i can get access to the internet properties (to dispose of the cookies etc) is to open internet explorer and go via the options menu.
I know its not important but its kind of annoying so if anyone knows how to get it back to the other way, i would really appreciate it.

:thumbsup:

What happens when you right click on IE in the start/programs menu?

Well the strange thing is, its not in the PROGRAMS menu but when i click start, its right at the top to the left of my documents icon. when i right click on that one, i CAN get the internet properties. I have dragged that shortcut onto the desktop to replace the other one but i still cant get internet options.

Well, that was going to be my suggestion that you do. How about copying the shorcut and then pasting it on the desktop?
