it was caused by the following code
private void OpenUrl(string url)   


            string browser = GetDefaultBrowser();   

            if (browser.Length > 0)   


                ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo();   

                psi.UseShellExecute = false;   

                psi.Arguments = url;   

                psi.FileName = browser;   









        private string GetDefaultBrowser()   


            string browser = String.Empty;   

            RegistryKey key = null;   



                key = Registry.ClassesRoot.OpenSubKey(@"HTTP\shell\open\command", false);   

                browser = key.GetValue(null).ToString().ToLower().Replace("\"", "");   

                if (!browser.EndsWith(".exe"))   


                    browserbrowser = browser.Substring(0, browser.LastIndexOf(".exe") + 4);   





                if (key != null)   





            return browser;
