Go to My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > File Type tab, scroll down a little to the URL:Gopher Protocol entry, highlight it, click the Advanced button, make sure "open" is highlighted, click the Edit button and make sure that in the "Application used to perform action" field you have

"E:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

in there.

In the DDE Message field you have

"%1",,-1,0,,,,

In the Application field you have

IExplore

And in the Topic field you have

WWW_OpenURL

Then go back and make sure it's the same for:

the URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol entry

and the URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol with Privacy entry.
