    When I start Internet Explorer 7 from an internet shortcut on the
    desktop, Windows Explorer hangs and I get a "Windows Explorer is not
    responding" dialog box. If I start IE from its icon and subsequently
    select the same desktop shortcut, everything is fine. If I change the
    default browser to something like Opera, the desktop shortcuts work

    In Internet Explorer I have disabled all Add-ons and third-party
    browser extensions, and neither has helped . I am running Vista
    Ultimate 32bit.

    Any ideas other than breaking out the OEM disks and doing as repair
    installation of IE? This has been a subtle problem for awhile, so I
    do not have an easy restore point to go back to.
