Hi Team,

As you can see by the pic i'm getting this error message popup. 

All my Internet Shortcuts (.url's) i click on my desktop open my browser and direct me to the web page,

then mr message box appears. A little googling tells me my file associations are out of whack.

The fix i got was to edit folder options/file types/extensions Internet Shortcut .url. 

the default was internet explorer, so in advanced settings i changed it to my default browser chromium 32.0.

seemed logical? but alas annoying problemo still persists.

Could some kind soul possibly lead me in the right direction?

Thanks.. :smash:
