        When you save a shortcut to a particular Web site on your desktop, and then you click a link on that Web site, you are unexpectedly logged off the Web site and connected to a logon Web page. This issue occurs when you use the desktop shortcut to open the Web site in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1.

        This problem occurs because the session cookie is not sent to the hyperlinked Web page from the original Web site that you accessed through the desktop shortcut. You must log on to the original Web site and then obtain a new session cookie before you can gain access to the linked Web page.
