I have another bizarro super annoyance. If you have Windows Defender installed and ShellOpen html files - it causes an exception "The RPC server is unavailable" in your app. I traced the call stack and this is because Defender has hooked shellapi and when you open a page, Defender is trying to do some internet talk with MS (I have no idea why that's failing) and the fun guys throw an exception when it fails (though apparently it's caught and it goes ahead and opens the html anyway).
