Just set the fileextension '.url' to be opened with your browser.
That should solve it.

If you click on the link in the start menu, in what application does it opens?
What is your default browser?
Any other problems with certain files?

I've associated .url with IE but wheni try to open the link it asks me with what program i would like to open it, i select IE but problem continues.

It's not a big problem but i would like to know why it happens.

Things like this can happen if the registry is a little messed up.

I've no experience with the registry, never touched it. But it's strange because i've formatted a week ago so it should be all ok.

Let me know if you find something about it. :D Thx you are great guys.

open Windows Explorer / Tools / Folder Options / File Types

Search for the extension URL. If it's not there, click add new, type URL in the extension box, click advanced and choose the file type to: Internet Shortcut.

If it is there and the filetype is not internet shortcut - try to delete it and recreate again.

PS.: this applies to WinXP, in other systems the menus are organized a little differently, but should give you the clue.
