Loks like you ahve a mapped drive which is no longer accesible, or maybe tou have  Internet Explorer Enhanced Security installed (you could uninstall it from Add/Remove Windows components).

I advice you next time when you are looking for help to give the maximum information related to your problem, beginning: with system operation version and all conditions/actions that generated symptoms.
