The most common cause of this message is when the fah client configuration for "Use IE Settings" is set to yes.

* In the console client, run with the -configonly switch, and change the setting to No. For more detailed instructions, see the entry on how to Reconfigure the Console client.
* In the GUI client, right click on the FAH tool tray icon and select configure. Select the Connection Tab. Uncheck the box for Use IE Settings. Also uncheck the box for Proxy, unless you are specifically using a proxy connection. Click OK. Right click the icon again and select Quit. Wait 2 minutes for the client to shut down, and then start it again using the shortcut in the Startup folder under Start/Programs.
