Hello,
I am having problems with my new Windows 8 explorer. It says that it cannot find device on computer named "http"
Can anyone tell me how to fix that or even what it means?
Any help is greatly appreciated

Just to verify you do mean Windows explorer not Internet Explorer correct? What are you attempting to do when this error happens?

Are you using the browser in Desktop or Windows 8 mode?
