If the problem is not with the local intranet, try these
1)  If this is recent run a System Restore to a time before it started
2)  Are you using Windows Defender?  If so, See the very first responding post (by Anannya Podder) where she suggests disabling WD.  Actually you could try disabling any other security app, too.

3)  And in the same reference is another fix, this time by IlakkiyanJeyakumar  dated June 30, 2013 who says he had two desktop files which were conflicting.

I gave you three alternatives.

Basem KhawajaAuthor Commented:
three alternatives that does not mean one of them has to be the solution. Sometimes maybe 1 out of ten proposed solution that might apply  to a given problem. second just because I did not comment on each alternative that does not mean I did not look at it. This problem been around for quiet sometime. I just been ignoring it but now I decided to pursue it therefor I do not think the system restore would fix it. third I am the administrator, what was mentioned by IlakkiyanJeyakumar  dated June 30, 2013 who says he had two desktop files which were conflicting , I do not have 2 folders like he stated therefor that solution was not relevant to my issue. I did further checking and found out that when I select 16 shortcut websites in my favorites folder to move to a sub folder then I do not get the warning but if I select 17 or grater then the warning comes up I am not sure if this helps with the solution.

This is another Windows "gottcha"
Just ignore the warning is the recommended solution here.

any reason why windows is doing this meaning placing a number of 16 favorites I can cut and paste no problem to  a sub folder but not 17 or greater?
