Problems with Google shortcut

For some inexplicable reason I am being told I cannot get Geoogle because it does not have an http// heading, please see atchment. I downloaded SuperAntiSpy which also installed Google Chrome which I did do not want so I uninstalled it and ended up with no Google at all.

Can anyone help please?

Actually, the error message states that the http shortcut does not have a registered program. When you removed Chrome, the shortcut was not registered with other browser.

Just righ-click the shortcut, select open with, and assign the browser of your choice to always open with.
