    Hi, whenever I click a desktop icon which links to a http URL Windows
    Explorer (!) is opened, an error message occurs ("(null)" is not a valid
    link. Click Start to search for a file...) and IE 7.0 is opened as well.
    After clicking OK on the error message the link is opened in a third window -
    which looks like a web address is accessed from the address bar within
    Windows Explorer. Also some links accessed from e-mails, etc. will open
    Windows Explorer windows first. IE 7.0 beta 3 is the default browser. I
    already tried to reset all IE settings but was not successfull changing this
    stupid behavior. This was also a problem with beta 2 and occurred first after
    installing, un-installing and re-installing beta 2. Everything works fine if
    a blank or non blank IE 7.0 window exists on screen. Has anyone an idea how
    to solve this problem?
