Hello All,

I am having an issue where my url shortcuts are not launching. It lost the file association to the HTTP and HTTPS file assosiation. When I manually change it for the Administrator user account it works temporarily. When I log off then back on It no longer works.

When I open File Association for HTTP open settings I see:
"C:\Program Files\Citrix\system32\iexplore.exe" "%1"

If I change it to "C:\program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe" -no home (Which is what it is supposed to be) then try the shortcuts it works. Once I log off it loses the settings and this is happening to all 20 users on this terminal server.

How can I change this within the registry so all users will maintain the HTTP and HTTPS file association?

Thanks in advance.
