Firewall update Now Causes IE Shortcut to Activate "Safe Surf" Alarm/Rejection

I assented to the Comodo Firewall update on 2/27/09 PM and installaation. Ever since, a “Safe Surf” window/rejection has appeared whenever I attempt to use the desktop IE Shortcut. I still can launch IE via the Start Menu, but the negation of the shortcut access to the internet is inconvenient and unsatisfactory. John Gamble
