Suddenly all my desktop icon sites display a window saying ( cannot open file, windows need to know the program that created it ) Any new shortcut created gives the same problem. these sites open normally from the favourite list in I/E Any suggestions please

Try a System Restore back to before this started.

You need to find out what's happened to the target for each shortcut.

Right-click on one of the malfunctioning shortcuts, then click on Properties. If, as your post suggests, these shortcuts are all to web pages, you should find a tab called Web Documents. On this tab there will be a field labelled URL. Check that the correct URL for your intended web page appears in this field.

I was typing while Technotiger was posting. His solution is probably the quickest to accomplish.

I had already tried system restore, have checked URL, address is correct. Thanks , will check later for any more suggestions as I have to go out
