Looking for some help please.
I am using AutoCAD 2011 and everytime I open a saved .dwg file, Internet Explorer starts up and the AUtodesk help page loads. I can't figure out why this started or how to fix it. I assume there is an option somewhere?
I open probably 40 differnt drawings a day and this is really getting annoying. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I have downloaded .dwgs from the web, I get them sent to me via dropbox links. It's been several months since the last one & this issue just started last week. Yesterday, there was no change. I was opening/saving .dwgs from a network drive and my local hard drive all day & no change.
easiest method i found (when you know the drawing is your own and you think it's pretty clean - i.e. it's NOT from another person or firm) is to just copy all the objects (you can SELECT, ALL) and then paste to a new, blank dwg file.
also you can wrack your brain...

That's essentially what I'm doing. I have a huge database of wiring diagrams saved and when creating a new set of drawings I open one of my saved drawings to copy/ paste & everytime I open a new .dwg file IE pops up and loads the Autodesk help page. In a typical day I open dozens of drawings (all of which are my own) in a day and constantly having to switch windows to close IE is a huge pain. This just started all of a sudden last week.
So, this isn't looking like some sort of setting someplace in AutoCAD that just got turned on inadvertently?
I see this behavior sometimes with problems in customized start-up sequences, typically a (command...) call has an extra double quote "" in an argument or the process doesn't take into account the command failing or using unexpected options.
