    IE opens and says
    http://"c/Program Files/Safari/Safari.exe" as the link

    Fix - IE opening, Safari not opening

    1. Go to "Run" and type "regedit" and press enter
    2. In the "Registry Editor" window, go to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Microsoft -> Windows NT -> CurrentVersion -> Image File Execution Options -> safari.exe
    3. In the right side block, there extra line other than (Default) as
    %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
    4. Delete the %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" and check again.
    5. Now safari works fine.
