Tinyurl & Links & IE7

  Zak 22:30 16 Feb 2008

I have the Tinyurl in my Links toolbar but when clicking on it I get an error:

"Internet Explorer cannot download

Unspecified error"

I folowed instructions on Tinyurl to Add TinyURL to your browser's toolbar.

All worked as explained but the link gives me above error.

Same for Snipurl.

Is this a security setting in IE7?

Your help appreciated.

Delete tinyurl from 'links'. Possibly url corrupt. Google for url again, open, then add to links again.

I did as you suggested but this did not change anything and problem continues.

The same happens if shortcut is saved in Favourites.

I only had the Links enabled in the taskbar or I was trying the link from Links in Favourites.

On enabling the Links toolbar in IE7 all works perfectly.

Thanks for your help rdave13.
