hey a simple solution for many people with this problem is fixing your
default browser registration...

i see you have your problem fixed, but for others..

try making sure i.e. is your default browser (or which ever browser you
like)

in my situation i had firefox as my default browser, then i removed
firefox so technically i had no default browser...

i had turned off the option for i.e. & opera to check to see if they
were the default browser so i never actually changed it back.

after trying everything here, nothing helped, so i checked what
"internet shortcuts" were being opened up with and i saw this:
"rundll32.exe shdocvw.dll,OpenURL %l"

seemed like this was pretty non-specific. and sure enough it is a
command that opens internet shortcuts in the registered default
browser...

cheers,

vive le femme avec le Double DD
