URLs won't launch from Start>Run after upgrade to 2K

Post by S2V2aW5 » Fri, 10 Oct 2003 04:36:05


Apologies in advance if this is the wrong group...After upgrading a Win98 SE box to Win 2000, I am not able to access web pages by typing a URL in the Start>Run menu. It displays a dialog that tells me there is no application associated to http://www.yqcomputer.com/ , for example. Now I am not about to associate .com files with Internet Explorer just to use this functionality--imagine the implications. Has anyone ever seen this before and been able to fix it? Although not a huge deal, it is a major pain when you are so used to doing something one way and you lose the ability to do it. Thanks in advance.

What version of Microsoft Internet Explorer are you using?

In Internet Explorer go to Tools/Internet Options/Programs
and check the bottom box. Close & restart IE and say yes
when prompted.
