Internet Shortcut on Desktop tries to connect elsewhere.
I've been having problems with this for a while, but it hasn't been a major issue.
We want a shortcut to a URL on the desktop of all users.
I've put this in the profile.
It's there, no problem.
I log on, double click that and it says it's 'connecting to: <a google ip address>'.
But if i click home, or open IE first, then double click on the icon, it loads instantly.
Had this issue with various sites and IE 6 & 7 and maybe 8.
So it's like it can't establish a connection first, but why google? It's not our home page either.
I know when i first discovered it, it was trying to connect to a 'go.microsoft' address.
Putting the site in favourites works fine as IE has already 'established a connection', and i've used that to get past the problem in the past. But these icons are needed on the desktop for very young kids.
Any help appreciated.
