Hi everyone. I just noticed something that is becoming more of an annoyance the more it happens. What is happening is when I right click in IE8 to send a shortcut to the desktop, it is saved in Read Only and opened by MS Word. What changed to have this happen and how can I get it back to saving the shortcut to the actual website as it use to? Thanks in advance...Garry

Have found the problem and solution. The problem came after uninstalling Google Chrome (Chrome changed Registry Keys, but uninstalling Chrome didn't rectify changing back). The solution was here
Hope this would help anyone with the same problem...Garry
