    If i open IE7, then click on a desktop shortcut that i dragged from
    favorites, it opens fine in another tab. If i open the shortcut directly
    with the browser being closed, IE7 hangs. started occuring after recent
    updates. based on other discussions, sounds like im not alone.

    Windows XP or Vista?

    If XP...
    Is IE6 the default browser? Check that at Control Panel> Add or remove
    programs> Set program access and defaults.

    Also XP...
    Try the URL File Association Fix from
