Subject Re: Fwd: Internet Explorer not working correctly after installing Tomcat

So.... IE is working correctly, just pointing to an invalid page.  Can't 
you simply change the homepage?  Also verify the icon you are using to 
open IE isn't opening it with a specific location like 
http://localhost:8080/fwlink/
