Uh oh still doesn't work for me...

Hello! This is my first post - thank you for this forum! I'm having the same problem "There was a problem sending the command to the program." message comes up when I click on a desktop link. In my case, I'm testing on a weather gadget. The "solution" is on the right track - if I change IE (8) to the default browser, it works. BUT when I change back to FFox (3.5.5) I get the message again. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

fixed??!

Hello again! I have *no* idea why, but it's working now... I did update video drivers etc - but nothing that makes sense to me. Sigh. Thanks, anyway!

I have the same issue when opening a file on my network

When I try to open an MS Office file somewhere on my network, I get the same error: "There was a problem sending the command to the program."
However, the program opens...but I still get the annoying error. What does it mean and how do I get rid of it?

My problem was resolved when I disabled the FoxyProxy add-on that I had installed. Someone mentioned this in another forum and it worked for me.

I am getting the same error msg

win7, IE Expl 8 - all of a sudden I am getting the same error msg, but none of my shortcuts work, nor do any of the links within my email messages. But I can open my browser and the links there seem to work. I just installed AVG Free 2011, could this have anything to do with it? Also, I installed a ZIP program earlier, didn't like it, uninstalled it, found that it had changed my home page and installed a weird tool bar. Uninstalled the tool bar from the control panel, reset the home page, but the shortcuts still get that error msg.
