Windows 7: problem sending command

problem sending command

When I click on a desk shortcut to open a program, I get first the statement:" There was a problem sending the command to the program." Then the program opens anyhow.
The computer runs windows 7 and firefox 3.51.
How can I get rid of the unnecessary statement:" There was a problem sending the command to the program?"

TIA gfheiche

HEY gfh

First welcome to sevenforums.

WE could use all your computer specs, OS specs, clean install or upgrade, etc.

TIA

Hello gfh, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a test for now, you might see if creating a new shortcut directly from the Firefox exe file may work better instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Right now, I drag the URL from the Navigation Toolbar onto the desktop.
How do I do this from Firefox.exe file?
Thanks gfheiche

Hey Ken,

It is a desktop with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor, 1GB RAM, 32 bit.
I upgraded from Vista home premium to Windows 7 Ultimate, using the latest free Release Candidate.
Firefox 3.51

Thanks gfheiche

GFH,

You would just go to the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder and right click on the firefox.exe file and clickon Send to and Desktop (Create shortcut) to create the new shortcut to open Firefox with.

Changed default browser to IE and after that FF back.
All is fine now.
I've thought maybe it helps another one.
