    first check that start works from the command line:

       start http://google.com

    this should start the default browser, with google, com as the start page.

    Hi Bruce

    Yes it works from an old school command prompt.

    start http://google.com forces chrome to open up (which is already set as my default browser) and navigates successfully to google.cm
