No, that link didt help, my default internet browser  is IE and in "default program" IE is only browser for Internet Explorer.
this problem start happen after we uninstall Citrix from that server, i dont know if this could help.

your solution on this is much appreciated.

Are you ok using the registry?

If so, check for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\http\shell\open\command and check for a value there.  It should be something like "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

There is an article that talks a little about this here: http://forums.citrix.com/message.jspa?messageID=91040

Hopefully this will do it.

Are you using Citrix?  I don't know if a server reboot is necessary for this.  I would think either restarting terminal services would more than do the trick.  If it were me, I would back up the registry and do a search.  Don't get too gung ho, but look for anything that is citrix related that repoints to a citrix folder.  I can't guarantee that this won't do any damage (thus the backup).  Another option, if you are using citrix contact them.  This seems to be their problem.

That article I posted above also mentions how to turn off the content redirection entirely using:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\SFTA
Value Name: DisableServerFTA
Value Type: DWORD
Value: 1

I don't know if this would work, but it might be worth a try.
