Dear group,

Can't figure out why it's doing this. looked on the MS support pages but
didn't find anything.

Any ideas?

If you click an icon and get that error, it means that the Path/location to
that file has either been changed, moved or deleted. Rightclick the icon and
look at the Path and then check the file name. You can then do a search>
files and folders and see where it is located. Then rightclick the icon
again and
edit the correct path name in it. Or a simpler way is to search the specific
file and rightclick it and click create desktop icon and then delete the one
that gave you the error. If you cannot find the file, then you may have
deleted
it so check the Recycle Bin.
