We have a machine that gets the following error message when trying to navigate in Internet Explorer:

"Windows cannot find '(null)'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search ."

Mozilla Firefox starts up after the message and goes to the requested site.

This is a Windows XP box. Has anyone seen this message before?
