When I install the SP2 upgrade I no longer can use internet shortcut icons. When I dclick the internet shortcut icon the browser opens but it always shows "about:blank" in the address bar.

Did you try changing your default home page?

I found the cause of the problem was a third party browser. I uninstalled the browser then rebooted to set IE as the default browser and reset the IE defaults.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
