error opening the shortcut or locating the target filename?

I'm having a problem with my hard buttons on my Treo 700wx (sprint). I've not hacked the registry, so I didn't mess anything up there. I'm trying to use the original settings for the buttons for IE and Windows Media Player. I pretty much use the buttons as they were programmed. Option/Phone button should bring up Internet Explorer. Holding down the side button should bring up Windows Media Player. I'm getting the error for both of these. If I go to settings/buttons and check, they both still say they are pointing to the right program. If I point them somewhere else, click ok, then go back and set them back to what I want, it will work for a while, but then will error again. If I go to Today Menu/Programs to find either program, the on screen button works correctly. Why would it keep forgetting what to do with these buttons? The only extra I have on the phone are:
Magic Button
Sprite Back up
Cubis
DEveloper One Agenda One
Dinarsoft MemMaid
Microsoft . NET CF 2.0

I have TREO700WX-1. 14 - spnt
Version A
Firmware Version 108
PRL ID 20224

I've tried a soft reboot and it worked for a little while, but then the error came back. Doesn't seem to matter what I have open or closed as I've gotten the error with all other programs closed.

Anyone else heard of a problem like this? I did a search of the forums, but couldn't locate anything similar.

What error do you get exactly? Have you tried a hard reset and then trying to check if you get an error?

something like this maybe? I get it once in a while but I thought it was because of ilauncher.

Mine does the same thing on a pretty regular basis. I take my phone out of the case, turn it on and, voila!, I get this error. Sometimes I have to OK it several times to get it to go away.

FWIW: I do not have ilauncher installed.

In my opinion that is not a good sign, those are OS shortcuts so they should work. If you try a hard reset and the problem it's still there I'd get a replacement.

Edge23's error is exactly like the one I see. I don't have ilauncher either. I"ve not tried the hard reset yet because I really didn't want to have to reset everything up. If there's a software problem I figured that restoring from a back up would just restore the error, right? I was really hoping I could find an answer that didn't involve a hard reset. Has anyone else who's had this problem had a hard reset make it go away? Did you start over with a clean sync or restore from a back up? If a hard reset is really going to solve the problem it'll be worth it, but it's so much work just to see if it might fix it.
