I have tried most of this but none has worked so far. Please note, when I
went into Options/Internet and removed the path/file information from the
Main Browser and Other Browser fields and now MSIE 6 is launched whenever I
use the F8 or Shift+F8 keys. I can also launch MSIE from my NoteTab clips
using ^!Shell and ^!Command commands. Further more several other programs
will launch MSIE from file associations so this is not a problem. The
problem is that I can no longer use the "Main Browser", "Other Browser"
feature in the Options setup. If I set this up with the path\filenames, it
gives me the error message twice each time I try to use it with out
launching either browser. The only way that I can launch the other
browsers now is through a clip.
^!C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\Mozilla\mozilla.exe "^**"
Launches the current document in Mozilla but I cannot lauch it the old way
that I could. I have to add a button on my clipbar rather that use the
other. I can use the other if I make mozilla my default browser. So you
see, associations do not have an effect. Apparently it has something to do
with NoteTabs method of accessing browsers through the Options settings.
Anyway thanks for all of your help and suggestions.

What you put in this message may be different than your actual shortcut
or what you have entered in View/Options/Internet/Main Browser or other
browser. But, the command line above shouldn't work.
^!"C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\Mozilla\mozilla.exe" "^**"
A pathname with spaces should be surrounded with double quotes whether
you're in, or, out of Notetab. If this is your path and if, by chance,
you don't have double quotes around the "path/filename" string put them
around the string and try it.
This is some of the earlier post that I didn't send.
I've seen similar Error Messages on occasion when running a script or
shortcut and the path/name with spaces wasn't surrounded by quotes.
This could be such a case an was inadvertently saved
The fact that F8 gives the error msg. seems to indicate you may have a
similar path problem? It's only seeing the 'C:\Program' part of the
Do you use MailBag and have you recently built any scripts to capture
messages from your email client? Possibly the 'Program' file in the
\root is a collection that should have been added to a mailbag archive
except for the faulty path.
You might try adding .mbg extension and see if you can view it in MailBag.
This may not pertain but, for installing and uninstalling, I remember
from one of these lists, advice to uncheck 'View/Options/Advanced/Store
settings in registry.
If I had to, I would;
Backup the Registry, Use a registry Cleaner to clean invalid
entries, then backup the registry again.
Run Disk fixer, Scandisk or third party.
Run a defragmenter, Windows Defrag or third party.
Cross my fingers.
