Carbonite problem when PC starts up

  notnef 14:34 20 Aug 2008

I have used Carbonite for some time and it works for me and does actually restore files when needed.

However, recently whenever I close my PC(OS XP) down and then restart and try to use the Carbonite icon in the tray to see the status or kick start back -up, I get the message that Internet explorer cannot find this website! (Firefox 3 is my default browser)

Carbonite simply say that I should change my browser, but this problem never occurred in the past.

The solution is to re-install Carbonite which takes 10 minutes but this is a real pain.

Recently had to reinstall Windows XP and a new Hard drive ( actually not done by me- too much of a coward)- is this a coincidence?

Any thoughts
