Another way to do this is a little more complicated, but works just as well - if not better.
Select the icon for your internet browser already on your desktop. Copy the icon and paste it onto your desktop.
Now right-click on this new icon and click "Properties"
Click on the "Target" field, there will text in quotation marks in this field. At the end of the quotation mark, add a space after the last mark and then type in the internet address you want your new shortcut to go to (i.e. "C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox irefox.exe" www.examplesite.com), when Firefox is your browser. Now click "OK" in the dialog box.
Go ahead and change the name of this new shortcut to whatever you want. When you double-click this link, it will open up your website!

For that open your browser and type website name after that go to file menu and select save as in that save as type select "web page" and save into your desktop. A webpage saves to your desktop with your website name. From next time onwards use that to open your website. otherwise add that website to favorites in your internet explorer. If you using firefox as web browser you can add to bookmarks instead of favorites.

Is it possible to have an iconI love your puzzles -I would like an Icon on my desk so that I wouldn't havehe address everytime I play - I've tried but can't


If you mean a link to a website address on your desktop, then right click on the desktop, point the mouse to "new" and wait for the submenu, and select "shortcut". It will ask you for an address or location. Enter, or copy and paste the website address that you want the icon to link to and press return. Next it will ask you to name it.....type in whatever you want the icons caption to be, and press return. That should put your new icon on the desktop. Test it to make sure it works. Hope this helps.

I wish to get Facebook ICON on my desktop


Facebook allows users to keep in touch with friends and family from an easy-to-use online dashboard. You can create a desktop shortcut to the Facebook site to eliminate the steps of having to launch a Web browser and manually type in the URL of the site every time you wish to log in.

Open any Web browser and navigate to facebook.com. Click the "F" Facebook icon located on the left side of the address bar next to the URL. Hold down the mouse while you drag the icon to the desktop.

Dell Dimension 5150. After bost my computer, I can the accounts icons on the screen, but I cannot slect the icon by mouse because all USB port did not work.


You can try this. On the log-on screen where you see your Account Icons try pressing ctrl alt delete. Some windows XP are configured that if ctrl+alt+delete are pressed on the lon-on screen the classic log-on screen window will appear, where you can type your username and password thus eliminating the use of the mouse.

I start the internet and I get redirected


There is a malicious software application called the Google redirect virus. If your system is affected with this resident virus, you will be redirected most of the time. Each time you click on a favorite to reach a website, you get IE8 redirect problems - due to the Google redirect virus. I recommend a scan to know if your IE8 redirect problem is attributed to the Google redirect virus.
Not all antivirus applications can detect it. You may use Microsoft Security Essentials for regular use (it takes care of several specific types of spyware) or if you wish to go for a one time scan, you can use MS AV online scan. Once you have completed the scan and have found and removed the virus, I recommend you use the best maintenance software for Windows to avoid the problems in future.
IMPORTANT: Please clean your computer for temporary Internet files and cookies prior to running the online AV scan as they may interfere with the scan process.


Read more: http://www.brighthub.com/computing/windows-platform/articles/60039.aspx#ixzz0qCSBheKI Sometimes the IE8 redirect problems are also caused by corrupt add-ons. To test this, right click on the Internet Explorer 8 icon and select Start without Add-ons.
If you can browse normally, it means the problem is some add-on. Start IE8 normally and disable all add-ons (Tools → Manage Add-ons). Enable them one by one to isolate the add-on that's creating the problem. You can disable or remove that add-on to prevent future IE redirects.
If you still get redirect problems, I recommend you uninstall the Internet Explorer 8 and download the "Internet Explorer Optimized for Google". This optimized version gives fewer troubles that include eliminating most IE8 redirect problems too.

Why does Bing keep popping up when I want to get into my hotmail account and preventing access to my hotmail ?


Because Bing is too often implemented as an intrusive and annoying facility.
Many Bing-enabled webpages seem to be coded such that just mousing over any number of common words and phrases pops up unwanted and unneeded Bing boxes relating to those words and phrases, blocking what you are currently trying to read.
The people who design these pages apparently believe this is a wonderful and helpful new way for websites to work. I'm not one of them, and user experiences like yours are the reason for my opinion.
The solution is block the Bing website:
Step by step:
1) Open the IE options.
This can be done by using the Tools menu within IE and selecting “Internet Options”, by right-clicking on the IE icon on your desktop or Start menu and selecting “Internet Options”, or by launching “Internet Options” from inside the Windows Control Panel.
2) From the IE Options window, select the Security tab
3) From within the security tab, click on the “Restricted sites” icon and then click the [Sites] button right below it.
4) A list box window will pop up. In the “Add this website to the zone:” filed type in *.intellitxt.com then click the [Add] button.
5) Close Internet Explorer. The next time you open Internet Explorer the change takes place.

My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.


Hi dear,
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.


then use it.

if not resolve it

then use following step ;-


click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

bye take care
good luck
